Based on the 1928 Joseph Moncure March narrative poem of the same name, the story focuses on Queenie and Burrs, a vaudevillian couple who are constantly quarreling. They throw a party to end all parties, struggling to make the other jealous. In the process, Queenie falls in love with Black and things come to a head at the end of the night forcing Queenie to move out.

THE STORY

SYNOPSIS

The show is presented as a series of vaudeville sketches, complete with signs announcing the next scene propped on an easel at the side of the stage. Its plot centers on a party - fueled by bathtub gin, cocaine, and uninhibited sexual behavior - hosted by Queenie and Burrs, whose relationship is disintegrating. It quickly evolves into an orgy that culminates in tragedy.

The guests include fading star Dolores; Kate, Queenie's best friend and rival; Black, Kate's younger lover, who has his eye on Queenie; Jackie, a rich kid who has his eye on everyone, regardless of gender; Oscar and Phil D'Armano, a gay couple/brother act; lesbian stripper Miss Madelaine True and her morphine addict girlfriend Sally; colored prizefighter Eddie, his white wife Mae and Mae's underaged Lolita-like sister, Nadine.
