Between cookin’ up Belt Busters and Christian Steak Finger Baskets and dealing with the pressures from the community, his discovery of sexual identity and orientation is explored in this funny, touching and timely show that is “fall out of your chair laughing, reaching for a Kleenex the next moment, documentation of life affirmation” – Austin Chronicle. There’s never a dull moment in Cedar Springs, Texas, as Johnny experiences encounters with Ladybird Johnson and her C.I.A. agents, zealous preachers who try to “make him right,” school kids who taunt him for being a “sissy” and a set of ceramic head-bobbing poodles that help him find meaning to life as it is and the possibilities of change in the future . . .
