The Dumpsta Players Present… Bitchy Beach Burnout

Hey, ya’ll! If you haven’t made it to the beach yet this summer, never fear! Bob and Barbara’s has agreed to make this Wednesday night, July 18th, an All Night Beach Themed Party so please dress accordingly 😉 Drink specials all night long for the hottest bathing suits!!!


Bitchy Beach is home to dozens of misfit, jobless hipsters living at their parents’ homes and pretending they’re still nineteen. Surfing, shopping and skanking are all totally rad and a sneaky shag with your best friend’s guy is a favorite past time.

Buff surfer, Dex Devon and his surfing fraternity, Big Stick Club, rule the waves and snag chicks on a nightly basis. Dex’s steady, Lola Laurent, has a chip on her shoulder and Daddy’s credit card, but knows little of Dex’s secret sex life. Enter Sweetie, new girl in town and from the wrong side of the surf.

What happens when Dex gets drunk and asks Sweetie to get kinky? What will the other girls do when they find out about this tryst? And what really ever happened to Desdemona on Crab Cove Trail?!?

Go topless, show off your bikini, but watch out for jellyfish in – “BITCHY BEACH BURNOUT!”

Wednesday, July 18th 10:00 PM doors, 11:00 PM showtime! $1.99 cover 21+ @ Bob & Barbara’s 1509 South Street Philadelphia, PA 19146 Info: (215) 545-4511
