Captain Shadowban and her crew of reprobate space bimbos must save the galaxy from evil!

Calling all campy freaks, sci-fi geeks, riot grrls and disaster queers – join us for a stupid sexy satire, born at the altar of transgressive cult classics and ‘xploitation B-movies of the 1960s. With psychic slugs Sesta and Fosta approaching at hyper-femme hyper-speed, our cunning heroes fight libertarian cowboys, an immortal tampon deity, Elon Musk’s cryogenically frozen head, and negotiate the true meaning of justice in an increasingly polarized galaxy.

Since its sold-out premiere last year, Bimbos in Space! has been proclaimed “a fascinating piece of absurdist, feminist theatre”; Claud Spadafora’s sharp script induced “so much infectious laughter, cheering and hooting throughout that it’s easy to understand why this show is so popular” (Steel City Reviews).

Claud Spadafora: Playwright, Sound & Projection Designer, and Producer
Kit Simmons: Director, Set/Costume/Props, Intimacy and Fight Director

Advisories

Content Advisory for Bimbos in Space!:

Bimbos in Space! contains a lot of playful sexual innuendos and sexual language. Many of the characters are sex workers and discuss their work, though we do not see them interact with clients. One character is a dominatrix, and she engages in an (explicitly consentual) sub/domme kink dynamic with several characters. There are visible sex toys on stage. Sex is a joyful part of this world and there is no sexual violence present.

There are some moments of misogynistic language.
There is a scene of implied cannibalism.
There is some stage combat.
Many characters carry weapons, which do not fire.
There is discussion and depictions of menstruation and blood.

Sensory Advisory for Bimbos in Space!:

Non-firing firearms, fake blood, small amounts of fake cigarette smoke (made of baking powder), some light stage combat, a few screams, voices and music heard over the speakers.
