Naples, New Jersey. 1959. Welcome to Johnny Bocca's Place, where barflies tell bawdy tales of guys and broads. In walks Lenora, a prim housewife with a broken-down Edsel and a mysterious tale of her own...

Johnny Bocca's Sex Farce for Swingin' Lovers takes some of the naughtiest stories from Boccaccio's Decameron - a medieval Italian work similar to Chaucer's Canterbury Tales - and transplants them to America, 600 years later. The result is a hilarious new show loaded with sex, booze, and vintage lounge music.
