I recommend Tim Burton's The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories for its whimsically dark approach to fables. This collection of Burton's original poems and illustrations can be provocative and profound, or corny and naive- however these little monsters speak to you!

Phallus Johnson is a tantalizing, gender-bending shapeshifter who uses drag as a very obnoxious method of storytelling. They perform as a Queen, a King, a clown, an alien- whatever! In one act, you might see Phallus handing out balloons to the audience, crowd surfing, pole dancing, spraying Axe body spray into their mouth, executing delicious choreography, and above all else: encouraging their audience to live their most authentic lives.
