May/June 2018: PolySHAMory (Tampa, FL; Atlanta, GA)

Really Spicy Opera is pleased to present Kate Robards’ new hit solo show PolySHAMory at the 2018 Tampa International Fringe and Atlanta Fringe Festivals. This follow-up to 2017’s Ain’t That Rich mixes hilarious comedy with down-to-earth explorations of deep issues.


Kate Robards wrote and stars in PolySHAMory.

In 2014, Kate Robards’ debut solo play Mandarin Orange was named a Capital Fringe Festival highlight by the Washington Post, the first of several star-studded productions. Over the next two years, her solo play Ain’t That Rich racked up honors from Montreal to DC to the shores of Hawaii, including “Best Bet” at FRIGID NYC, “Best of Fringe” at the Capital Fringe, sold-out performances at the Marsh Theatre in San Francisco, and a Hoku Award at the Maui Fringe Festival. Now, Robards returns with PolySHAMory, the third installment in the award-winning series.

PolySHAMory is a show about his and hers. And hers. And his. Sex and sex clubs. Love and therapy.

Kate has everything she’s ever dreamed of. So does Kate’s husband’s girlfriend. Armed with the sex-positive ethos of The Ethical Slut, Kate plunges into the world of Polyamory. She has no idea.

PolySHAMory was named a “Best Bet” at FRIGID NYC-2018.

Kate Robards is an award-winning playwright and performer, praised by Montreal Theatre Hub as “A true gem who has audiences chuckling up one moment and tearing up the next.”

A Theatre is Easy “Best Bet”!

This follow-up to the award-winning Ain’t That Rich is filled with emotionally nuanced storytelling. A riveting sexcapade of love, betrayal and friendship!
