ACE IN THE HOLE
There's nothing documentary theater won't tackle, is there? Crazy Christians, hate crimes, the death penalty, and now "pegging." Pegging is, of course, the sexual act in which a woman penetrates a man's anus using a strap-on dildo—something that happens a lot more frequently than one would imagine. Dan Savage coined the term in his column in 2001, graciously creating this neologism for real-life couple John Leo and Sophie Nimmannit. The pair decided to share their indulgence with audiences in Peg-Ass-Us, which chronicles their own exploration of the act. In taking the topic on, they, well, "butt heads." But in the end, a mix of puppetry and original banjo songs relay the fruits of their anal labors.
