Little does he know that this strange and unusual plant will develop a soulful R&B voice, a potty mouth, and an unquenchable thirst for HUMAN BLOOD. As Audrey II grows bigger and meaner, the carnivorous plant promises limitless fame and fortune to Seymour, as long as he continues providing a fresh supply of blood. Just when it’s too late, Seymour discovers Audrey II’s extra-terrestrial origins and his true drive for world-domination.

“A Sissy in Wyoming” is a solo verbatim play written and performed by Los Angeles playwright, Gregory Hinton, a Cody native, and based on the remarkable life of Wyoming educator, activist, and crossdresser Larry “Sissy” Goodwin (1946-2020). The play is drawn primarily from an oral history of Sissy’s wife, author and activist Vickie Jones Goodwin. Sissy’s sartorial tastes tended towards peasant-sleeve tops, square dance-style skirts, and sporty bows in his graying short hair. Wearing this clothing in public brought frequent derision and name-calling and he responded by appropriating the slur “Sissy” to remove its sting. His public defiance of traditional gender roles made him somewhat of a Wyoming celebrity, but his advocacy, activism, and national and international humanitarian efforts make up his real legacy.
