In the sequel to The Shiny Shrimps (Audience Award Winner at OUTshine Fort Lauderdale 2019), the Shrimps Water Polo team are heading to the Gay Games in Tokyo, to honor a teammate who died. But after they miss their connection, they are stranded in homophobic Russia. Thus starts a crazy adventure that finds many of the Shrimps held hostage at a gay conversion camp while the rest of the group plans their comical yet perilous rescue. While uproariously funny, The Shiny Shrimps Strike Back does not shy away from skewering Putin’s Russia in all its homophobic (anti) glory…and that is reason to laugh. Oh and a few great musical numbers are included!
