Have you ever wondered what it would REALLY be like to walk a mile in someone else’s shoes. What if you had to spend the better part of your puberty years with the opposite sex genitals? If that sounds like fun than S.N.M. Services are right up your alley. Sammie & Marty in their early 30’s have decided to join a dating service that promises to leave them solo no more. However, while filming there profile video, where they are asked to tell an interesting story about themselves, things tend to veer towards the freaky side leaving you to wander how would you handle waking up at 16 (that prime puberty age) with the opposite sex genitals. A new play as freaky, twisted, bizarre and pleasurable as the title suggests. It will make you laugh, cry, cringe, and laugh again.

A resident of Kansas City, Kansas, Jacob made his stage debut at age 13 in a production of Smoke on the Mountain.
