Beckett meets Betty Boop in this trilogy of monologues by Canadian cult heroine Pochsy, a nasty, vapid, utterly charming vixen. In "Pochsy's Lips," she's in the hospital, convinced she's sick because she's got a squid where her heart should be. In "Oh Baby," she's at the Last Resort, on holiday from her job packing mercury. And in "Citizen Pochsy," our little minx is in the waiting room at an audit from hell. In "The Pochsy Plays," Hines remodels and melds traditions like stand-up, absurdism, clowning and neo-cabaret to create some of the most original and cutting satire to hit the stage - and, now, the page. Walk a mile in her distressed calfskin boots as the dark and ditzy Pochsy garbles ad slogans, self-help mantras and desperate grabs at meaning into a postmodern pastiche that is hilarious and harrowing, sweet and bitter at the same time. With extensive photos and musical scores, and an introduction by Darren O'Donnell.
