The Opposite of Sex

August 9 - August 20 | Nikos Stage
2006 Season

Author: Cohen, Douglas J.
Director: Roth, Robert Jess

Meet Dedee Truitt, a “troubled” 16 year-old who moves in with her gay half-brother in small town Indiana and runs off with his boyfriend and $10,000 from his safe deposit box. (And that’s just the first act.) Dedee’s wild ride – culminating in birth, death, and the search for Bananas Foster – wreaks havoc on the lives she touches, but also affects them in unexpected ways. A smart, moving, and wickedly funny adaptation of Don Roos’ cult movie hit. And yes, it’s a musical!

“This chair is a car. It’s the theater. Deal with it.”
