Written and Directed By D’Arcy Drollinger
“It would already be a lot for a single stage to contain the drag talents of D’Arcy Drollinger…But with “Bitch Slap!” — which Drollinger also writes — the Oasis’ stage is only further crowded by towering shoulder pads.” – Lily Janiak, SF Chronicle
“Clever…fantastic…uproarious…A never-ending laugh riot.” – Talkin’ Broadway
Adultery, blackmail, confessions, amnesia, nervous breakdowns, bigamy, adoptions, divorce, evil twins, seduction, catfights & shoulder pads! And that’s just in the first scene.Bitch Slap! is D’Arcy Drollinger’s stage send-up of the 80’s television soap-opera and telenovela.
Bitch Slap! centers around Diana Midnight and her fashion empire, as she struggles to maintain power and desperately keep control of her prize possession…the patent for shoulder pads. With nods to Dynasty, Days of Our Lives, María la del Barrio, Jackie Collins and more, this high-camp melodrama features a star-studded cast of San Francisco Drag Luminaries: D’Arcy Drollinger, Matthew Martin, Katya Smirnoff-Skyy, Nancy French, Steven LeMay, Jef Valentine & Chrissy Fields; along with the hilarious Leigh Crow, Adam Roy, Manuel Caneri and Sergio Lobito as the smoldering leading men.
