What has eight arms and likes to have anonymous sex with a roomful of guys?
The latest play at Stray Cat Theatre, of course--this one directed by the companys artistic director, Ron May, and featuring lead performances by a couple of talented veteran actors.
Steve Yockeys Octopus is a post-modern fable about a young gay couple whose one-night fling with another, older couple leads to the usual post-group-coital mess: jealousy, betrayal, raised voices. But because this is Yockey, it also involves a sea monster resurrected from the ocean floor. Fortunately for local theatergoers, the whole thing is brought to life by, among others, actors David Weiss and Ian Christiansen.
