Any Summer Sunday at Nacho Mama’s Patio Cafe

Every Sunday evening, TiaRa del Fuego’s Parade of Gowns drag show presents the best entertainment in our little, Indiana college town in Hoosier Daddy, the only gay bar around. Between sets, we gather for drinks and nachos at Nacho Mama’s Patio Cafe. Trading lies, jokes, adventures, celebrations and sorrows, our merry band celebrates the life of the small town gay, safe in the bosom of long-time friends.

However one evening, TiaRa announced she had found “true” love – yet again and was leaving to be with her latest amour. Disaster loomed. We had to face the question: How far will you go to save a friend from her own desires?

Over the course of the evening, the Entrepreneur, the Lush, the Boys, the Spy, the Southern Belle, the Fixer and the Storyteller struggle to help TiaRa find joy because that is what friends do for friends. It’s funny, heartfelt, thoughtful and a bit nasty. ASS captures small town gay life in 2007, when the bar was the center of the world and friends were the center of life.

Ghost Story for ages 9 +

Ghost Girl

The Ghost – Mattie died horribly nearly 100 years ago, swept away in a flood while her pa tried to kill her with a huge axe. Now she is stuck in the little town with buckets of water pouring over her all the time. She’s not even allowed in the graveyard. She’s spunky, pushy, 11 years old forever and has as much fun as she can – given her situation .

The Boy – Nate was dragged to live in the little, hick town by his mother. All he wants is to get back to his friends and his dad back in Boston. He doesn’t have any friends here and doesn’t want any. He’s not very happy – about anything. The Mystery – Mattie can’t find her body and she HAS TO! She only has eight days to find it or she is banished to the Badlands forever.

The Weird Thing – Nate can see Mattie and most people can’t. He’s not that thrilled about it.

The Others – A crazy, old cat lady, some old lady ghosts, a friendly librarian. Time is running out and Mattie’s Pa is back from the grave, swinging his axe and trying to stop Mattie & Nate. Mattie knows Nate is her last chance to find her body, but Nate won’t help. She rips half her face off and shakes it at him (ghosts can do things like that) and threatens worse. Surprise, Surprise… he agrees.

WARNING: Your parents might get scared and worried that you are reading about gross and sometimes violent things. There ARE some scary and gross and really mean things in this book (but it is a made up story – so tell them not to get too scared).
