Following years of performing theatrical monologues all across The U.S., Canada, & Australia (Wanderlust, The Bike Trip, The Surprise, and The Holy Land Experience), Martin Dockery brings his award-winning two-person play home to New York City, the last stop on an eight-city tour across North America. As the story of a man trying to get a woman into his flying bed, Oh, That Wily Snake! appears, at first, to be a surreal comedy. But as the fantastical adventure unfolds, the battle between temptation and fidelity turns ever more serious, climaxing in a moment that resonates from the very beginning of time.
