Shock Shack Entertainment presented The PeeVira Chronicles: Wedding Whorrer Story in the Red Venue at this year's Orlando International Fringe Festival. The show was written, produced and directed by AJ Prats with associate direction by Kim Matovina. The show was built around a goth cross-dressed wedding between PeeVira, the Peevish Voodoo Mistress (AJ Prats), and the groom (Jonathan Randolph). The play opened with mysterious monastery music and a hooded monk who paused for the longest time in front of me. I was afraid he might be judging my sketch which I had just started.
Between scenes, Josephina the cleaning lady (Sheli Nathan-Miller) interacted with the audience and got plenty of laughs. There must have been some complex costume changes going on back stage, and she did a great job keeping the audience engaged. PeeVira, although clearly a guy, looked divine in her wedding gown with Minnie Mouse pink bow in her hair and carrying black roses. Her huge white high heel boots peeked out occasionally from below her dress. The grooms pants are at his ankles because PeeVira has an infatuation with male anatomy. Later in the show, the groom got to play the part of a six foot high dancing dick. I had to sketch the maid of honor (Danielle Organ) since there were few females in the cast.
Other characters included, a slut driver girl, demons, pig cops and sperm clouds. A plot seems redundant with such a strange cast of characters. After the show the cast danced on stage and members of the audience got up to dance as well. I put the sketch away and danced. I can now proudly say that I have danced with a life sized dick. I still don't know how to pronounce "Whorrer" however.
