Big Thick Rod also known as Nymph, is a dark comic 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 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.  This play is published by Original Works.
