BRAZIL NUTS

Genre: Comedy, Solo Performance
written by Susan Jeremco and Mary Fulham

In BRAZIL NUTS, two lesbians walk into a bar. One of them marries a go-go boy. All three get drop-kicked into the Bermuda triangle of U.S. Immigration. This new comedy details the experiences of Fabiana, a Brazilian and die-hard soccer fan who has over-stayed her student visa; Jackie, her girlfriend who works as a dog-walker, office temp, and cater-waiter when she’s not writing her thesis on Third World Atrocities Today (T.W.A.T.); and Ron, Fabiana’s well-endowed go-go boy husband — a decent guy for a complete narcissist.
