"Bootycandy' adorns itself with flamboyance, ribaldry, hilarity and unsettling poignancy."

-Charles McNulty, LA Times Theatre Critic


Robert O’Hara’s semi-autobiographical and wildly subversive comedy tells the story of Sutter, a young gay black man on an outrageous odyssey through his childhood home, his church, dive bars, motel rooms, and his grandmother’s nursing home. At times poignant, shocking, hilarious, and wise, BOOTYCANDY is a kaleidoscope of scenes, sermons, sketches, and daring meta-theatrics. O’Hara uses bold social satire to explore the space between pain and pleasure and to take an unflinching look at attitudes toward homosexuality in black culture. Winner of the 2015 Lambda Literary Award for Best LGBT Drama.
