Marga Gomez's 'POUND' comes To Theatre Off Jackson for one night only

Theatre Off Jackson (409 7th Ave. S.) is pleased to present a special one night only preview of GLAAD award winning writer/ performer Marga Gomez's POUND, a sex fueled solo comedy on Sunday, October 4, at 7:30 p.m. Fresh from NYC and on her way to a run at Brava Theater in SF, tickets are $15-$30 and are available at www.theatreoffjackson.org. This show is highly recommended by Lisa Koch.

In POUND, Gomez plays a desperate version of herself as well as her Gay nephew Mikey, and a delicious assortment of cinema's most obscure and toxic Lesbian characters. A critically acclaimed audience favorite at New York's 2015 Hot Festival, POUND satirizes the gloomy portrayal of Lesbian lust in film history and the sexual side effects comedian Marga Gomez suffered from watching these movies.

When a mysterious gynecologist diagnoses her with 'acute celibacy' Gomez fights to get her groove back, fumbling a ladies' room tryst and teleporting to a steamy Lesbian data cloud where extortionists, showgirls, murderers and school teachers hook up in spectacularly meta ways. POUND is directed by Gomez's frequent collaborator David Schweizer, and is her eleventh solo play. This event is intended for audiences 18+.

POUND press quotes: 'Hilariously skewed' - New York Times; 'Charmingly raunchy!' - Village Voice; 'Friskily inventive. Gomez delivers.' - Michael Musto; 'Exuberant& a new level of intimacy and risk.' - American Theatre Magazine; 'Relevant social commentary & hysterically entertaining' - OUT Magazine; 'A fantasia of women's sexuality and how it's portrayed in the media. It's sly, cynical and full of hilarious venom.' - Luis Alfaro, playwright, MacArthur Fellow.

Marga Gomez is the writer/ performer of eleven solo plays that have been performed nationally and internationally. Her stage work earned her a GLAAD Media Award, Theater LA's Ovation Award and a nomination for New York's Drama Desk Award. Gomez is also one of the nation's first openly Gay stand-up comedians with television appearances on HBO, Showtime and LOGO. Her film, television and stage acting credits include roles in Barry Levinson's Sphere and HBO's Tracey Takes On... and the Off Broadway and national companies of The Vagina Monologues working with Rita Moreno and Jo Beth Williams. Selections from Gomez's writing have been published in several anthologies including Extreme Exposure (TCG Books), HOWL (Crown Press), Out Loud & Laughing (Anchor Books), Contemporary Plays by American Women of Color (Routledge), When I Knew (Harper-Collins), and Out of Character (Bantam Books.) She was born in New York and currently lives in San Francisco.
