A zoned-out-suicide-prevention-hotline operator and exotic-dancer-turned-pet-detective embarks on a ridiculous caper in this campy, noir mash-up of Law & Order and Charles Busch, featuring Nora Woolley, Kim Katzberg and plenty of pets.
Like Katzberg’s past work, STRAYS is inspired by autobiography, but is heavily fictionalized with larger than life characterizations and tons of meta-theatrical hijinks. The twisted, surprising story follows Terry, a zoned-out suicide prevention hotline operator, ex-exotic dancer and accidental pet detective whose attempts to locate a missing cat result in her revisiting a life she swore she left behind.
STRAYS is a solo show with two actors.
