FRINGE THEATRE – Penny Arcade: Bitch!Dyke!Faghag!Whore! – RCC FRINGE – Scott Theatre, Adelaide – 4K

By Alisha Dyer

In her 50th performance year, Penny Arcade (aka Susana Ventura) brings her bold and sexy show from New York to Adelaide in a theatrical 90 minute performance.

A self-described Bitch and Faghag, she recounts her personal experiences as both an ally and member of the LGBTIQA+ community alongside historical events that had devastating effects on the lives of the sexually diverse in America and worldwide.

Penny is not afraid to speak her mind and bare all for her cause. Be prepared for a lot of passion, opinion, politics and cheek. This show is anything but subtle.

Penny feels it is important to know that bitches aren’t born – it takes YEARS to become a bitch!

Laughs (and perhaps tears) aside, the ultimate take from the show is to “Love someone and allow them to love you back. It is the greatest political statement you can make.”

The use of dancers both before and throughout the show is a fun element and the scene and costume changes seamless and symbolic. The production is professional and lighting dramatic.

TIP: Arrive early to enjoy the pre-show entertainment and get a seat in the front row or aisle if you’re not afraid to participate in the show. Penny is an all-inclusive performer so wallflowers need not shy away.
Catch Penny Arcade at RCC FRINGE Scott Theatre. 18+.
