LOVEBIRDS video trailer: http://vimeo.com/
In her tenth solo play, GLAAD award winning comic performer Marga Gomez portrays a crew of incurable romantics as they chase their passions – into the night, through decades, and to absurd lengths. Orestes, a macho maitre d' is infatuated with a tin eared singer married to an academic who never sleeps and is never awake. On the other side of town Orestes's daughter cuts off her hair, joins a coven, and starts dating the captain of a women's football team. Weaving through the action is Polaroid Phillie, an ageless LSD fueled nightclub photographer and fixture at gay bars, Spanish restaurants, street corners and wherever sparks fly. Lovebirds premiered in June 2014 at La Mama Theater, New York City
“Hilariously etched characters in an intricate web of love, longing and life. It’s fast. It’s fun. It’s thought – provoking.” San Francisco Chronicle
"Gomez bucks the solo show trend by straying (mostly) from the autobiographical which was a welcome and refreshing change. Gomez also excelled at delineating and capturing her distinctive characters" East Bay Express

ABOUT THE PERFORMANCES
Marga Gomez "Pound" (first public performance)
Not for the faint of crotch, “Pound” penetrates the cinematic lesbian limbo where plumbers, showgirls, murderers and school teachers hook up after the movie fades to black and the Netflix rental is returned. Corky has a winning hand but her luck isn’t so good with the ladies. All she wants is sex in her truck from a sympathetic femme with a backstory. But every woman Corky meets has been created by a dude. What is a fictional dyke to do? Marga Gomez plays Corky and the dykiest denizens ever conjured by Hollywood's dream factory. Marga is the writer/ performer of ten more solo plays that have been performed nationally and internationally. She is a GLAAD Media Award winner and recipient of the 2014 ABC7's Profile in Excellence Award and the 2014 Bay Area Theater Critic’s “Gene Price Award” for "superlative professionalism and passion for Bay Area theatre”

Rent or Buy my NSFW Christmas show today and your 5 or 10 bucks goes directly to my next video production. This is a collectors item. The only show I have performed in my underwear. Shot in 2006 it was my holiday answer to the religous right and global warming. "Delightfully Innapropriate" San Francisco Chronicle
