Pickles Theatre Co is proud to present its very first in-person show: VELVETHEAD. VELVETHEAD features two strangers, Spit and Buck, who happen to experience euphoria in the middle of the night: A vision of Velvethead. Velvethead is a celestial figure with covered in jewelry, with skin made of red velveteen . Desperate to feel euphoria again the duo lose their grip as they descend into grander and riskier attempts to get his attention. VELVETHEAD is a queer exploration of joy, wonder and the mourning of lost innocence.
