Marga Gomez in “Swimming with Lesbians”!

June 1 2024, Mainspace Theatre

Running Time: 65 mins, no intermission

Written and Performed by Marga Gomez

In the Canadian premiere of “Swimming With Lesbians” GLAAD award winner Marga Gomez transforms into a boatload of lustful babes cruising the high seas including Isabelle the accident prone Lacrosse player yearning for her first Lesbian affair, Pru Perez the butch presenting but secretly meek bingo caller, Captain Debbie the ship’s commander, who goes strictly by the book (in this case it’s The Kama Sutra) and Babs and Jan who find love in an elevator. Gomez’s 14th one person show comes to We’re Funny That Way following sold out shows at La MaMa Theatre in New York. The performance runs 65 minutes with no intermission and is recommended for immature adult audiences.
