I'm offering half-price tickets and, for attendees who pre-order online before the show, a discount on my novel God Bless Cambodia.

I) The Play: The Chronic Single's Handbook

A controversial one-man show that offers an unapologetic look at how men feel about sex, love, marriage, and massage parlors.

III) More Information than You Want

The Play:
The Chronic Single’s Handbook is a one-man show by Randy Ross about a never-married hypochondriac who travels the world hoping to change his luck with love. Remember Eat, Pray, Love? This is nothing like it.

The story begins in Boston and goes astray in Greece, South Africa, and Southeast Asia. Along the way, audiences hear the stories “Domination for Dummies” and “One Day at the Curious Finger Body Spa.” 
The one-hour show has been featured at venues around New England and at fringe theater festivals in the U.S., Canada, and Edinburgh, Scotland.


The Writer/Performer:
Randy Ross is a novelist, performer, and web consultant. His fiction, humor, and erotica have appeared in The Drum, Black Heart Magazine, Calliope, and other publications. His comedic novel,God Bless Cambodia, was sold to The Permanent Press, a publisher of literary fiction. Hard cover publication date: March 2017.

In 2007, Ross took a four-month, solo trip around the world and learned to say in three languages: “Speak English?” “Got Pepto-Bismol?” and “Is this the evacuation helicopter?” The Chronic Single's Handbook was inspired by the trip.
Please note: The Chronic Single's Handbook carries content warnings for adult situations, adult language, and more adult situations.
