Private Dick: An Aurally Stimulating Evening

September 30, 2016 @ 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM


Chris Harder and Harder Candy Inc. are excited to uncover for YOU: PRIVATE DICK, queerly mysterious readings from gay and lesbian pulp fiction-with an added dash of the Hardy’s Boys and Nancy Drew too!

“Agents who weren’t like agents, homosexuals who weren’t like homosexuals — things were getting awfully mixed up.”*

“Frank noticed a suspicious bulge at the back of the man’s baggy trousers.”**

Drawing from a variety of authors and work, Harder, alongside Burlesque performer Nasty Canasta (Wasabassco Burlesque) and writer Issac Oliver (Intimacy Idiot) present an “aurally fixating” evening that juxtaposes the idealic and hard-boiled American detective with his (and her) even harder homosexual counterparts! Complete with Burlesque performances from Harder and Nasty and raffle prizes from Gun Oil Lube, The Pleasure Chest, and Harder Candy Inc.!
