Gay City Arts presents: Somebody Get Me a Chainsaw
A One-Man Show by Mark “Mom” Finley
Beware Shes Loose!!!
Its been about a decade since Mark Finley tried to make a comeback, at least 2 decades since shes done a new live show, and shes been stuck in this damn town for nearly 3 wasnt she supposed to be dead by now?!?! Yet Drag Icon Mark Mom Finley is doing a new live show for at Gay City. The evening promises to be full of Finleys unbelievable stories, funny songs, classic performances and maybe even a giant dildo!! As the script will be pulled out of a button bag live during the performance, he wont know what hes performing until that minute! And you wonder why she wants the chainsaw!
Finley is excited to be back onstage again. In October of 92 New City Theatre produced his third one-man show in a row Life Lessons where he held each audience hostage at (unloaded) gun point, had them choose 12 pieces of paper out of a bag with 170 possible stories. He said at the time that he was telling his life story whether people wanted to hear it or not because he didnt know how long hed be around.
Thanks to wonderful doctors and new medicines hes quite healthy and doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. The past show focused mainly on Finley’s early life growing up in a small town, traveling the world to follow his dreams only to have it deal him what, at the time, was a losing hand and ending up in Seattle. This new show will cover the past 25 years of his life living in Seattle: everything the ups and downs the scandals the successes and the surprise that changed his life!
