The Uncensored Lydia Lunch: A Discourse on Sex, Money, Politics, and the American Way of Life

 

“The Uncensored Lydia Lunch: A Discourse on Sex, Money, Politics, and the American Way of Life” was a one evening solo performance deriding the American political system, specifically Republican repression.  Lunch played the part of the all-American girl next door who moves into the White House and begins a one woman campaign against the president. Dripping with irony, Lunch’s biting satire critiqued political and emotional realities. In the program accompanying the evening’s performance, Lunch sarcastically remarked: “thanks to the American Government.” An eight minute melodramatic stream of consciousness poem written and directed Emilio Cubeiro titled “Mr. Officer, Sir” opened the evening.
