2013 Capital Fringe Show Preview ‘H Street Housewives’ by Jenny Splitter

Chickens in the backyard. Flame wars on the mommy listserv. Slutty househusbands and a plot to change H Street forever. H Street Housewives is the story of four housewives – the homeschooling locavore, the know-it-all supermom, the perfectionist who dreams of life in the suburbs, and a “real” New Jersey housewife – picked to star in the latest franchise of television’s hottest reality show.

This play is a first production for playwright Jenny Splitter. Her last reading was a ten-minute play about a snarky fetus. She’s now progressed to a production about snarky urban housewives.

Our amazing cast includes a professional opera singer and inventor of the word “fuckchopowitz,” an ancient jazz priestess of Mother Africa, a Jeopardy loser and award-winning liar, a Janis Joplin devotee, an actor performing for the first time at Fringe in drag but for the second time as a giant penis, and an actor slash expert in the Real Housewives universe now forced to be our dramaturg.

H Street Housewives brings the heat and hilarity to Fringe this summer. Okay, our Redrum venue brings the heat, but either way, you’ll sweat and laugh your ass off at H Street Housewives at the Capital Fringe Festival. Join us for a round of sweet and boozy Sweaty MILFs after the show! Or just beer, whatever.
