About the show

By turns tenacious and tender, this world premiere performance at the Bushwick Starr reimagines the economies of power between friends, families, and wrestlers. More…

Drawing on a host of influences—spanning Genet’s 'The Maids,' celebrity psychotherapist Esther Perel’s available-on-Audible couples counseling sessions, 'Notes on a Scandal,' Elena Ferrante’s Neopolitan Quartet and Precious Moments® Collectible Dolls — this kaleidoscopic production grapples with the desire, rivalry, vulnerability, and subterfuge that bind two people together and maps the bonds and hysteria of earned intimacy.

Ambitious, Entertaining, Funny, Quirky, Dizzying

See it if you're in the mood for a series of sometimes zany vignettes that are more about mood/intensity than plot

Funny, Edgy, Quirky

See it if you want something offbeat, funny, unusual that contains vignettes of humor, dance, song, w/allusions to sexual attraction, gender

Don't see it if you want a straightforward linear play

“Intense performance piece...Replete with self-consciously arch dialogue, the script often brings to mind a role-playing, late-night improv session by two smart, spliff-toking college students, who are perhaps a bit too pleased with their own wit.

“For Markey, pheromones are the project, and the great pleasure and power of their newest show — the mischievous, sweaty 'Singlet' — is witnessing the undeniable flow of real, layered chemistry between them and their fellow performer Emily Davis...'Singlet' walks right up to the edge of the easy ...

“A play that is at times frustrating, hilarious, and rewarding...Wrestlers and supermodels alike obsess over their weight, but is that where their similarities end? I doubt it after seeing this show. Director Jordan Fein doesn't underline such connections in his clean and simple staging, but he d...
