Dean Wreen is having a difficult week. Her campus renovations are meeting stiff resistance from the town and her ex has returned to live with her. This complicates her relationship with Andromeda, her new (and much younger) girlfriend. Museums, romance, politics and yes, seven enormous mammoths collide in this academic sex comedy by one of America's most fun and original new playwrights.
Note: Seven Homeless Mammoths is Rated M for mature content and language. This production features simulated sex between prehistoric college students and contemporary lesbians. No mammoths were harmed nor museum dioramas damaged in the making of this production.
