About the Show
Until the tragic Wet T Shirt Relay Race all the passengers on The Celesbian cruise ship looked up to Pru Perez, their pool game emcee, as a leader and Boss Lesbian of the sea. But on this fateful sunny day Pru grabbed the poolside mic one last time. “Ladies, we have a tie on the Lido Deck between the G Spots and the Beavers!” Before the winner could be named, an old boarding school nemesis, Arlene, pushed Pru into the deep end. Pru paddled, stroked and kicked only to sink deeper as her shameful secret spread to every deck and cabin. Pru Perez can’t swim. A solo sapphic seafaring spoof.
