  • In this bizarre character study drama played as a satire of the Cafe Cino/La Mama/Andy Warhol sub-culture, Dewey is a young actor who has just had sex with an older woman actress, named Miss Gloria, who talks about her lifestyle as a 'compass rose'. After Dewey leaves the apartment, Gloria has over some 'medical doctors' who give her 'medication' involving a blood transfusion. Dewey goes home where his girlfriend, Olive, arrives and shows off some of her latest wardrobe and plays around with him, despite his lack of interest in her. Dewey phones his friend Stew, a hippy type who is also a struggling actor and sells drugs on the sides in wanting to look to finance his first directing gig. Meanwhile, Brandex is another bare-chested actor who flirts with Cathy, a dim-witted actress/stoner who debates which blouse to wear for the upcoming show. All of the characters meet at the Cafe Cino to perform a strange experimental and interpretive play involving singing, dancing and drag queens thrown in for no good measure.

  • A interrelated character study of various persons connected to underground off-off Broadway theater subculture in New York.
