The Mental Notion Society and Plan 9 Burlesque present Fight Club: A Project Mayhem Burlesque. A woman in a bathrobe has a pistol in her mouth. The gun is being held by a gal in a backless top. And so, the show begins…and ends. In between, a narrator recounts the moments that led to the gun trouble. Through a chance encounter, the insomniac narrator meets Taylor Durden on an airplane ride. After Taylor gives her a private striptease, the narrator goes home with her. During an argument, it gets physical. They duke it out. The pleasure they derive from a wrestling-smackdown becomes the catalyst to forming a secret society. They invite women to get their aggression on with fisticuffs and pasties. And the gals arrive to kick ass and show tits. These broads are brawling for bras! Fight Club: A Project Mayhem Burlesque undresses the sadomasochist inside the ladies.
