Adult-rated show at Nanaimo Fringe takes the audience into ‘jock boy’ and ‘square girl’ stereotypes, challenging everyone with questions about objectification and relationships
SQUARE: A Stage Pornography is an erotic comedy that explores the crisis unattached people face in their late twenties. Eternal high school jock and big-man-on-campus Thomas Pankratz is in a rut and doesn’t care. Smug and content in his extended adolescence, he happily goes about his daily business of being lewd, crude and clueless until the warm summer’s night he gets a surprise visitor – the girl he has dismissed for twenty years as dull and “square.”
The play is being performed at the 2014 Nanaimo Fringe Festival, at the Nanaimo Museum venue.
