Writer/performer Kirk Read creates an evening of stories about sex work,
hallucinations and the apocalypse. Read learned to perform in a touring
Virginia evangelical youth group, with some in his hometown expecting
him to become a preacher. Instead, Read became an escort and an avowed
fan of magic mushrooms. In short, Read is a different sort of preacher.
Read's stories weave in and out of Jeffrey Alphonsus Mooney's
soundscape, creating an atmosphere of magical trance. Read's humor and
acute observation, together with Mooney's trippy, layered music and Liz
Singer's shimmering video installation, will take you to church. Expect
to hear stories about a 450 pound sex work client, people with dietary
restrictions, the Brady Bunch and touring through rural Alabama with
genius strippers.
