CockTales performance improves, $1,000 raised 'making dick jokes'

By Max Robinson, Contributor

March 12 and 13 saw the second annual production of CockTales, McDaniel College’s one and only forum for monologues on male issues.

Last year, the cast consisted of nine men and women. This year’s cast nearly doubled in size and covered issues ranging from testicular torsion to popular rejections from sperm donation to the art form of masturbation.

While I feel last year’s cast was a little more closely knit than this year’s expanded group, the quality of the program has stayed just as consistent. This year’s monologues managed to stay original and not retread old ground covered in last year’s show, despite having a larger cast and being a longer show.

That isn’t to say this year’s show was flawless; there wasn’t as much practice as last year and the first night’s show was plagued with technical difficulties.

Still, this year’s performance exhibits some very healthy growth; the larger cast and larger audience turn outs (even after adding another show). The sale of some very delicious Cockies and super-stylish CockTales T-shirts allowed us to raise over $1,000 for the Boys Home Society of Baltimore and Family and Children Services of Central Maryland.

Not too bad for a bunch of guys and gals having fun and making dick jokes, huh?
