Big Thick Rod

by Stanton Wood

directed by Edward Elefterion

Cricket and her new husband, Elmer. The honeymoon is over. 

BIG THICK ROD is a neo-realist fairy tale that follows a wood nymph named Cricket who leaves the forest to marry a lawyer, only to discover that he never wants to have sex. Since sex is an essential part of her magical nature, she hires a simple handyman named Rod to “make up the difference”, and a power struggle begins. This sharp new comedy uses the mythology of sexual identity to explore the dynamics of power and exploitation. Negotiating a world of eunuchs, male prostitutes, three-armed gardeners, repressed lawyers, and blow-up dolls, Cricket becomes more and more adept at using the tools of city capitalism to service her own needs.
