"Spermhood" Comes to Easthampton

The Easthampton production of "Spermhood" is happening on March 24 & 25 in the Eastworks West End event space. Both shows will be followed by a Q&A with the artist, Mike Albo. Spermhood is an autobiographically based solo performance by acclaimed writer and performer Mike Albo. Based on his Amazon Kindle bestseller, Spermhood: Diary of a Donor, Mike Albo’s Spermhood, directed by David Schweizer, chronicles the year he spent trying to make a baby with his friends, a lesbian couple. Albo also explores the insanity of modern digital dating, the reproductive industry, and the lingering shadow of AIDS for gay men, and what it takes to be a father. Mike Albo has been called “the ultimate satirist of the downtown New York social landscape, by the New York Times, and “A Wonderful Performer” by The New Yorker. This program is supported in part by a grant from the ECA+ Grants Committee, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
