Single Wet Female

Single Wet Female

Carmelita Tropicana. Single Wet Female, 2002.

Description:
Marga Gomez and Carmelita Tropicana Video still from "Single Wet Female." Written with Marga Gomez, directed by David Schweizer. Play with video. Premiered at Performance Space 122 in NYC in 2002. Photo Credit: Todd Phillips. Cast: Marga Gomez, Carmelita Tropicana, Murray Hill. "Single Wet Female" combines film-noir satire with goofball socio-sexual performance. It is a spoof of the film cult classic "Single White Female." Marga Gomez plays Margaret, a high femme Caucasian in a blonde wig, and Carmelita is Cammy, the uber butch who awakens her desire for plantains and merengue. The play includes video with drag king Murray Hill in the role of the boyfriend.
