Steve Yockey's Octopus

The season continues on January 31 with a stylistic departure for Island City Stage and its Artistic Director Andy Rogow, with the regional premiere of Steve Yockey'sOctopus. After young couple Kevin and Blake engage in an adventurous and hastily planned night of group sex with the older, more “experienced” Max and Andy, they are left trying to salvage their relationship from a pummeling mix of jealousy, betrayal, telegrams from a soaking wet delivery boy and a ravenous sea monster from the ocean floor. This universal love story rendered through a post-modern gay lens slips from domestic comedy into a darkly surreal fable examining the role and depth of commitment in relationships and what it really means to say the words “I love you.” This play contains nudity and requires special effects that will surprise and engage the audience.
