Brava Theater: Spanking Machine Special Engagement

May 31 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Brava presents a special engagement of MARGA GOMEZ’s
Spanking Machine

SUNDAY, MAY 31, 2020

On Sunday, May 31 at 5pm, Marga Gomez and director Adrian Alea Alexander will pick up where they left off (two months ago on the eve of the Nationwide shutdown) to bring you an exclusive livestream performance of Spanking Machine!

By turns funny and disturbing, Marga Gomez’s Spanking Machine recounts sadistic nuns on poppers, tender vampires, barrio life, childhood misdemeanors, parental post-nasal drip, fear, assault and suppressed memory.

The 60-minute show will seamlessly intercut Marga performing LIVE from her “home stage,” with footage from Marga’s performance at her final invited dress rehearsal in March. “There was a handful of us in the studio when we learned that shelter-in-place was imminent and Spanking Machine would not be opening that Friday,” Marga recalls. “So we put on a helluva final dress rehearsal and filmed it.”

Following the show, stay online for a virtual BYOB toast and chat with Marga and our Brava familia.

Tickets are $20 (with an option to donate on top of the ticket price). Proceeds from ticket sales go to the artists behind the work as well as to Brava, making it possible for this, and other works, to have a future once Brava Theater Center reopens. If you are viewing with two or more people, please consider adjusting your ticket price accordingly.
