Based on his Kindle bestseller Spermhood: Diary of a Donor, Mike Albo premieres a new theatrical commission presented by Dixon Place.

Author, humorist, and Out contributor Albo returns to Dixon Place with the hilarious account of the year he spent donating sperm for his friends, a lesbian couple. Dixon Place's (Ellie Covan, Founding & Artistic Director) new commission Spermhood will open on Friday, May 13 at 7:30 p.m. Albo explores the insanity of modern digital dating, the reproductive industry, the lingering shadow of AIDS for gay men, and what it takes to be a father.

Directed by David Schweizer, Spermhood will play six performances only (see schedule below) at 7:30 pm at Dixon Place, 161 Chrystie Street, New York, NY 10002.

Samuels Foundation and The Peg Santvoord Foundation.
