Temple of the Brunchhole

“Brunch Poems”
March 2023

A tale as old as time about how brunch became a gay blood sport.  And also, have you ever read “Temple of the Butthole” by Gayle Rubin? And if so, did you ever wish it was a play? One remniscent of the Wizard of Oz?

Our mission is to produce performance at odds with commercial theater and to make occasion for underproduced or forgotten theater.
