A city girl, Ms. Pussy DeLicker, comes to the country to obtain a divorce. Here, she is utterly shocked by the naughty things the local cowgirl, Shane, wants to do to her... but she finds herself willing to oblige! Can these women be saved by heterosexuality? Or are they forever doomed to lead lives of sexual deviance?
"A Roll in the Hay" is just one of the skits that make up Lesbian Pulp-O-Rama, and DeLicker is just one of its nympho lesbian stars. The play is based on pulp novels of the 1950s and '60s -- a genre that includes titles like 1967's Part-time Lez ("A part-time Lesbian. A full-time nympho. And a dyed-in-the-wool rebel!") and This Side of Love ("How could a bitch-kitten like Toni hold Val in thrall?"). Four of the show's six cast members came up with the idea for the play when they were flipping through a novelty address book that was filled with excerpts from these novels. "One of us said, 'This would make great theater!'" says the show's co-creator, Beatrice Terry.
Described by Terry as "a sexy, campy musical comic romp," Lesbian Pulp-O-Rama comes to the Broward Center for the Performing Arts (201 SW Fifth Ave., Fort Lauderdale) this week. A "dyke balladeer" serves as narrator throughout the play, using song to link its four vignettes. In the piece "Reformatory Girls," schoolgirls Cindy, Sandy, Mandy, and Judy discover that they have a more-than-scholarly interest in one another. "Lesbo Beach Party" features the femme DeeDee and goody-goody Frankie encountering a rich local butch named Dean. Other characters include Vonda, the German dominatrix, and Sondra Stingray, whom Terry describes as "a hard-boiled film noir detective; butch with a twist."
