Description

Full Length Play

Comedy

The comical and tragical history of Claude Caprice, tastemaker and couturier, from the master of the Ridiculous. Caprice introduces Babushka, the world's first live fashion model, the bra-called "freedom" the "gownless evening strap," and the ultimate fashion statement-sackcloth and ashes-in his keen competition with arch-rival Twyfibrd Adamant, who uses Tata, a fashion spy, to undermine Caprice and his lover Adrian. Baroness Zuni Feinschmecker is a slave of fashion, and her husband Harry discovers the world of fashion-and a new sexual identity-in the House of Caprice. Caprice is a comic delight, containing a uniquely unapologetic presentation of overtly homosexual characters. The Ballet du Macquillage-a dance for lipstick, powder, rouge, and mascara-is not to be missed.
