Love in the Time of Chlamydia

Company: Hard Sparks
Directed by: Jonathan Warman

Audience rating:

Love In The Time Of Chlamydia is one woman’s search for love in a world full of absent dads, dirtbag boyfriends, and premature ejaculators. Your first time wasn’t weirder and your best time wasn’t wilder than writer-performer Nicole Pandolfo’s.

Nicole Pandolfo’s paean to the perils of sex and booze takes her from suburban Jersey basements to Manhattan barrooms, and from morning-after despair to chemically induced ecstasy on a funny, poign ant, empowering journey of self-discovery.

Produced by Hard Sparks (Eightythree Down) and directed by Jonathan Warman (Now The Cats With Jeweled Claws), Love In The Time Of Chlamydia boldly goes there: awkward adolescence, flying bodily fluids, underage drinking – way underage. Aided by projections (and beer), this wickedly funny one-woman bender takes on frat boys, revenge fucking, venereal disease and Valentine’s Day with the comic insight of someone who knows…better.

“One in the hot tub, we take the leftover vicodin Amber has from getting her wisdom teeth removed, wash it down with some Mad Dog 20/20, and pass a joint...”
