Orgone—the hunchback, pinhead, priapic sex maniac hero of this experimental epic—re-enacts the classic tale of the search for a lost parent, traversing the worlds of angels, saints, devils, gamblers, gypsies, monks, nuns, and whores before being reunited with his mother, Turzahnelle, having encountered such colorful characters as Carla, the Gypsy Wildcat, Baron Bubbles in the Bathtub, Turtle Woman, Saint Frigid, and Saint Obnoxious along the way. High comedy, low comedy, classical rhetoric, and sublime poetry mix to produce an idiosyncratic and hilarious view of contemporary sexual mores. A sublime and liberating theatrical experience for the daring and demanding.
