The Rope (rõp): (n)
1. An implement by which tug-of-war is played, a tool for struggle.
2. A modern update of the Roman play, The Rope follows Plesidippus as he tries to free the girl he loves, Palaestra, from the pirate pimp Labrax and his transgender parrot Hedonagee*. Like its ancient counterpart, this play is dirty, racy and calls into question gender and power roles. It’s like walking into an elevator with Aristotle’s ideas and banging the shit out of them. Bring a friend so you can hold hands during the sex scene**.
*One of these characters was made up expressly for the purposes of this blurb.
**There is no sex scene***.
***Actually, I just remembered there kind of is.
