“It’s like an inner-spirit ventriloquism; the exchanges are real, her timing is perfect.”
– Paper Magazine
This year Dynasty Handbag is hosting the family holiday dinner that is sure to be a messy mash up of passive-aggression, fart jokes, personality meltdowners. Everyone has something to bring to the table, and when all become deathly ill, everyone is suspect of bringing in the virus. But who is the motherfucking asshole sibling who would infect everyone? It must be Dynasty…she is the HOST after all. Find out when a family secret is revealed and an antidote must be found… or else!
Using live performance and 4 on-stage projections of family members, all performed by Ms. Handbag, BSMF is a tour de farce of comedic acting skills as well as a film editor’s nightmare.
