Open: 04/17/19- Close: 04/21/19 Scrambled Porn
Scrambled Porn by playwright/performance artist Brennen Vickery, is an experimental play about why people build relationships only to destroy them—unearthing the fear and longing buried underneath it all. In the aftermath of their relationship, in the abyss of someone’s front yard, Adam, Sam, and June try to prove why they couldn’t be alone but can’t stay together. At their individual mics like a busted En Vogue live set, the ‘throuple’ share the creation of their own suffering.

“I am so excited to be working with Eden Theater Company again after our earlier collaboration of my Secret Science Fair production in 2015,” says writer/artist Brennen Vickery. “ETC has embraced me, and I feel privileged to share this new play with the company.”

Sarah Bernhardt, baptized Catholic, faced anti-Semitism in the 19th century for her Jewish heritage; Elizabeth Keckley, former slave and companion of Mrs.Lincoln, was subjected to racism during travels with the widow; Buffalo Bill, Indian fighter in his youth, mourned the death of his great friend Chief Sitting Bull; Marcel Duchamp created a controversial genre of visual art using found objects; Alice Lansen, accused thief, was a self-proclaimed baroness. Together, they look to a “living” lesbian couple to help them find new homes.
