“I just went to Dug Nap's show at Flynnspace. ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT. Personal, funny, and insightful, Dug's show redefines performance art. Don't miss Friday night's performance.” --Todd Lockwood

“What a wonderful show you last night. Very courageous, endearing, sweet, real, and something we can all relate to as human beings. Bravo!" --Jane Ann Kantor

Ever wonder why you turned out the way you did? dug Nap does. The popular Burlington artist, poet, and songwriter is back in FlynnSpace to act it out for you with the first in a new series of funny, poignant, and dramatic performance art pieces called Napshots of My Life. In Napshots of the Suburbs, dug Nap takes an honest look at his early suburban life in the fictional town of Starksbend. The show contains lots of great fibs, half truths and lies—although he swears it’s all true. His illustrated “napshots”—hundreds of new original folk art/outsidery art illustrations—are projected onto a 6 x 8’ screen during the performance. Last at the Flynn with his sold-out performance of My Imaginary Girlfriend, don’t miss dug Nap’s latest creation.

"Sometimes we used to go to Pete's house to watch T.V. Pete had a babysitter. I think her name was Barbie and one morning she sat on Pete's lap. I did not like that. No, I didn't. Not at all."
(From Napshots of the Suburbs by dug Nap.)

"One time me and Rod and Dick went for a sleepover way up on Rabit Rock. After supper, we sang The MTA Song by the Kingston Trio—and then something really weird happened."
(From Napshots of the Suburbs by dug Nap.)
