The Facts of Life: The Lost Episode
Only 2 dates remain for this parody play inspired by the popular 80s sitcom, which plays at The Footlight Theater at the Parliament House August 16 & 17.
He’s tackled Joan and Christina Crawford, Hannibal Lechter and Clarice Starling, and the Sugarbaker gals of Atlanta. Now he has his sights set on the girls at the Eastland School.
From the writer who brought you “Mommie Queerest,” “The Silence of the Clams,” and “Re-Designing Women” comes the raunchiest show in his repertoire. And it’s definitely Rated R. The Facts of Life: The Lost Episode by Jamie Morris comes to the Footlight Theater at Parliament House in Orlando for 4 shows only!
Dildos, prostitution, cerebral palsy, and lesbian sex are just a few of the politically-incorrect plot-lines that mark this as an adults-only show! The premise of the show is simple. When budget cuts force Mrs. Garrett to leave Eastland Blair, Tootie, Natalie and Jo will do anything to raise the money so she can stay. Anything. (Ok, they become hookers. And they sing and dance about it!)
Add an evil Headmaster who has a thing for Mrs. G, lesbian overtones between Jo and Blair, and a guest cameo by cousin Geri and you have the lost episode Showtime wished they’d snatched up.
As the sitcom’s popular theme song proclaimed, “You take the good, you take the bad.” These girls take it all.
Performed by an all-male cast, “The Facts of Life: The Lost Episode” does not incorporate actual episodes. This is a comedy inspired by the beloved
Facts enjoyed a sold-out run in Dallas, where the show was extended three times and became the most successful show in the history of the Uptown Players. It was also named the #2 Ballsiest Show in Dallas by Pegasus News. And the Column Awards (the People’s Choice of Dallas) just showered the show with a slew of nominations including Best Play and a nod for every actor in the production.
When the show played in L.A the producers and cast were nominated for a 2009 Weho Award for Best Entertainment Group.
Facts just came off a sold-out, six-week run at Empire Stage in Ft. Lauderdale where the critics raved. Rod Hagwood of the Sun-Sentinel said, “The randy, rowdy, raunchy show bangs and booms in the cozy, black-box theater as the cast gives a sinfully good send-up of the 1980s-era sitcom. For 90 minutes including a 15-minute intermission, you’ll get your money’s worth from this filthy and funny blast.”
