Humorous theatrical monologue

Skinny, effeminate Menno Kuijper has many things, including his wit, style and falsetto vocal cords, but what he really wants is to grow muscles and date army captain ‘Stud’, reasoning that: ‘if Harry Potter can do it, why can’t I?’ In a theatrical monologue, Kuijper amuses with his songs and humorous outlook on the dating world in what is a gently enjoyable and heartfelt performance.

A romantic liaison with a closeted, ultra-masculine army captain inspires skinny effeminate Menno to explore his own inner masculinity. Gently enjoyable and heartfelt. 'Part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2007'.
