Dirty Girl

Written by: Ronnie Koenig
Directed by: Robert W. McMaster

Meet Dori Richter, a nice Jewish girl from Long Island whose life changes when she answers an ad in the newspaper seeking a writer-editor who must be comfortable with male nudity. DIRTY GIRL takes audiences on a wild, comedic ride from the offices of the fictional Loverboy magazine to steamy photo shoot locales as it tells the story of Dori's quest to find a woman who is actually turned on by the images in her magazine.
Firecracker Productions and Horse Trade present the World Premiere of DIRTY GIRL, a new comedy beginning previews January 4th at The Kraine Theater. Based on the real-life experience of playwright Ronnie Koenig (who was the editor of Playgirl magazine from 2000-2002), the production is directed by Robert W. McMaster. Opening night is scheduled for January 6th.

Following a sold-out one night stand at Ars Nova, DIRTY GIRL has developed from a one-woman show called Centerfold into a multimedia extravaganza. The production stars Corrie Beula, Bridget Harvey, Ronnie Koenig, Michael Littner and Jesse Teeters with costumes by Krista Thomas and designed by Edward Hodge. The show is sponsored by Secrets in Lace.

Testing the boundaries of gender, sexuality, erotic experience and self, Firecracker Productions explores the base experiences that make us all human, and which, sometimes, make more humans. The company's debut production was a raucous, pop-culture infused rendition of A Midsummer Night's Dream at HERE Arts Center in 2001. This summer they will present Red Light Night: An Evening of Plays about Sex by writers including Noa Gottlieb, Mark Snyder, Lizz Leiser, Angela Lovell, Lou Perez and Rich Orloff. They also produced a reading of Luke Alberts' coming-of-age comedy Get Down at The Manhattan Theatre Club, slated for a full production in the fall of 2007.
