Hello friends! Like so many, I found my plans dramatically altered when the COVID-19 pandemic sent the world sideways. What was to be the busiest performance season of my little career cancelled, seemingly overnight. Suddenly I had a lot of time on my hands, so I chose an equally dramatic pivot to express myself from home.

Introducing The Two-Plys of Coronet County. I've created a web series! The Two-Plys is a Southern Gothic-pandemic-toilet paper roll-soap opera starring some of the, I think, best recycled paper thespians in the biz. I'm thrilled to finally share this project which I've been working on since early April 2020. 

Tremendously talented folk singer and Fringe artist Willi Carlisle was generous enough to lend his skills in crafting the theme song. And I've poured so much of myself into every frame.

I hope you enjoy what I've created. There's a new episode coming to you weekly for the next six weeks. These are sad, angry, frustrating, seemingly inconceivable times. Making the Two-Plys has helped me cope as another tragic, disgusting, infuriating event piles on top of this seemingly insurmountable mountain of shit that is 2020. 
 

Fortunately, what's better for wiping away a bit of shit, if not toilet paper? Enjoy xoxoxo Dandy Darkly 

Episode 1 -- "Pink Petunies"

Created by Dandy Darkly. Theme song by Willi Carlisle.

“A spectacular storytelling performance that is completely distinctive. If you are looking for a show that will emotionally haunt you and intellectually dare you, Dandy Darkly’s All Aboard! is the ride of a lifetime.”

Edinburgh Festivals Magazine  

“Grotesque, profane, profound and laugh-out-loud funny, Dandy Darkly’s All Aboard is exactly the one-of-a-kind experience Fringe was invented for.”

Orlando Weekly

“Of all American performers none comes close to the creative eloquence of queer storyteller Dandy Darkly. All Aboard! is a wake-up call to mankind — taking out fame, the mob mentality of social media and the rise of the far right around the world.”

The Stage

“Traditional storytelling at its finest – the roots of what defines humanity, shaped and sculpted for the present. A can't miss performance."

Haunting.net

“There’s no one like Dandy Darkly, a transporting, charismatic and psychedelic experience in which the passion for justice burns as strongly as delight in the macabre.”

The Scotsman

“A decidedly wicked storyteller.”

New York Times

"Dandy Darkly is wickedly mischievous, creative, joyous, boisterous, lyrical, brash, poetic, funny and entertaining!"
