After a brief, uncomfortable, morning encounter with a flasher in a park, lonely, willowy orphan Pip (Cameron Eng) finds employment under the wise, embittered, nearly-title-holding drag queen, Mz. Havisham (Dave McKew) at Satis House, a struggling gay bar long past its heyday.  Enamoured by her cosmopolitan and beautiful assistant Estella (Gaea Denker), Pip is unwittingly caught up in the world of drag pageantry as he’s mysteriously entered in the prestigious Fabulous Expectations contest.

His heart set on impressing the impenetrable Estella, he overcomes his straight-guy reluctance and commits himself to drag performing, only to discover his fiercest competition is none other than Havisham’s number-stealing rival, the vitriolic Anna Rexia / Bentley (Mikl-em) and the gender-bending boy toy waif, Pocket.  But plots within plots unfold, and Pip realizes that he’s got to man up in order to beat off the other contestants and be the best female impersonator on stage.

Will poor Pip get his happy ending with Estella?   Will Bentley take the cake?  Or is this all a big excuse to have some laughs?  Well, what do you expect?

Playwright Gaea Denker has a fondness for classical lit and lowbrow wit. She writes comedic material for Ham Pants Productions (, 915 Cayuga (, and The Sparkleponies ( She holds an MFA in writing for screen and stage.

Songs written by Princess Cream Pie (, San Francisco faux queen and swinger-songwriter extraordinaire. “Quick Sniff of Poppers” written by New York drag sensation Ida Slapter.​

Fallen Cosmos: Calling All Artists, Performers and Amazing Folks!

Calling all artists, performers and Amazing Folks of All Kinds!

The San Francisco Institute of Possibility has announced its next enigmatic participatory multi-disciplinary arts event, Fallen Cosmos, on January 31st.  It's an immersive night where hundreds of folks have collaborated to create an completely otherworldly reality, where no one person can see absolutely everything and no two people will have the same experience.  Details of the event are kept clandestine to ensure maximum possibility!

Foul Play has the distinct honor to head up the vital team of guides to ensure everyone's good time. Our cadre has a hybrid role:  Not only are we inhabitants of this innovative world, we act as guide and docent to the patron, facilitating their interaction with the installations as well as providing logistical information.

You can find out more info about the event here, although it only contains the scant information released to the public.   And you can contact us at if you want to enlist!

Their previous event, the All Worlds Fair, unfolded at the Old Mint and you can see photos and find out more here.
