Solo performance powerhouses Martha Rynberg and Thao P. Nguyen join forces to give you "In the Crosshairs," a two-person sketch comedy show about hair. Yes, hair!

Have you ever wondered what your nose hairs would say if they could talk? Ever uttered "oops" while cutting your friend's hair? Want to try on 15 different pubic hair toupées? Rynberg and Nguyen explore our intimate relationships with the hair on our bodies. Toe hair, eyelashes, nipple hair -- "In the Crosshairs" leaves no hair unturned.

Rynberg and Nguyen show incredible range. In one show, Rynberg and Nguyen's comedy seamlessly alternates from razor sharp to unapologetically slapstick. The true artistry (and comedy) of the show is in its critical exploration of how sexism, misogyny, racism, and homophobia impact how we style, groom, remove, and grow hair -- but mostly, it's fun.  


"The show is phenomenal! Both crazy entertaining and so joyfully feminist in that wildly brilliant way. It will have audience members rethinking and talking about their hair and body long after the show is over."
  - Coke Tani
   Writer, Dancer, Facilitator
   Performer & Playwright of 'Soft Tissue'

"Hairy good fun! Thao and Martha take us through an international whirlwind of the hilarious and complicated world of how we deal with those fickle follicles. They do the best impersonation of individual, personalized hairs that I've ever seen. Pee-in-your-pants funny!"
  - Susan Ito
   Writer, Performer, Teacher
   Author of 'The Mouse Room'

"If the Marx Brothers were a pair of Feminist badasses who had a show about waxing, plucking, threading and lasering with Gilette-worthy wit, you'd have the hilarious two-person show, 'In the Crosshairs' with Thao P. Nguyen and Martha Rynberg. You'll be quoting it well after the show is done. Trust me. This is not to be missed."
  - Zahra Noorbakhsh
   The authority on all things good and bad
   'Good Muslim, Bad Muslim' podcast

"In the Crosshairs is smartly written. Thao and Martha have a gift for telling stories around the unexpected and interesting. The jokes are always clever and never predictable. I totally enjoyed the show and talked about it for hours afterwards. Beautiful!"
  - Amy Sueyoshi, Ph.D
   Professor in Sexuality Studies and in Race & Resistance Studies
   San Francisco State University
   Author of 'Queer Compulsions'
