Johnny Depp: a Retrospective on Late-Stage Capitalism
From the minds of Val Dunn and Jenna Kuerzi from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, comes a satirical look at Johnny Depps film career from pre-teen heart throb to Wino Forever, and everything in between, to ask. What happened?

Toss your golden doubloons, Scissorhands memorabilia, and embarrassing fan letters onto the shrine turned dumpster fire Depp has created for himself. Part ritual & part drunken singalong, Johnny Depp: a Retrospective features rum, promiscuity, and $30,000 worth of candles by which we can pay to watch the Rich consume us all. Jenna Kuerzi as Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow as Johnny Depp as Late Stage Capitalism as Jack Sparrow. Val Dunn, for one brief shining moment, as Winona Ryder.

*Any resemblance to persons, living or dead, is intended purely as a satire.*

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is Johnny Depp?
Johnny Depp is an actor who achieved prominence through a bevy of lovable loner roles in the 80's, 90's and early 2000's. He also used to be very good looking, which didn't hurt his star power. Recently, he has seen a pretty quick decline in his celebrity power due to law suits, alcoholism, and a seemingly quick temper. He is most known as Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies and he used to be Jenna's favorite actor.

What is Late-Stage Capitalism?
Late-Stage Capitalism is defined thus, from google: "Late-Stage Capitalism describes the hypocrisy and absurdities of capitalism as it digs its own grave."

Why Johnny Depp?
Val Dunn and Jenna Kuerzi are both fans of each other's work and of each other as people. As they were brainstorming things they loved, they discovered both had dressed up as Captain Jack Sparrow for Halloween in middle school and high school. From there, the ideas started flowing for a show centered around movies and celebrity, and a roast of Johnny Depp came to be. Is this significant grounds for touring a modest living room play to the international stage? We think so!

Why is Johnny Depp an unacknowledged, yet never the less an indisputable, lesbian icon?
The devil may care smile, the tousled hair, a love of bracelets and bandannas. More than a passing likeness to Ellen DeGeneres.
