Marga Gomez in “Swimming with Lesbians”!

June 1 2024, Mainspace Theatre

Running Time: 65 mins

Written and Performed by Marga Gomez

GLAAD award winning solo performer Marga Gomez brings  Swimming With Lesbians, her 14th one person show to We’re Funny That Way for it’s Canadian debut. Written and performed by Marga Gomez the solo comedy is a buoyant and bawdy romp, set aboard a fictional lesbian luxury ocean liner rolling on a sea of absurdity. Blending her past experience as a cruise ship entertainer (and lesbian) with her delight for nautical tropes and sea shanties, Gomez morphs into a boatload of lustful characters including: Isabelle, an accident prone Lacrosse player yearning for her first Lesbian affair, the ship’s commander, Captain Debbie, who goes strictly by the book (in this case it’s The Kama Sutra) and Pru Perez, the butch presenting but secretly meek bingo caller, spending her days at sea hiding from a boarding school bully who unfortunately booked passage. The performance runs 65 minutes with no intermission and is recommended for immature adult audiences.

Content Warning

Adult content and language.

No matter your age, gender or sexual persuasion, if you feel like laughing until you're gasping for breath, ‘Swimming With Lesbians’ is a must-see.

Scrumptious characters!
