Ketheron's Bucket-Mending and Hymen Emporium

A woman commits a tryst on the eve of her wedding night and in desperation, turns to a lesbian charlatan for hymen help.

Film notes

“Ketheron’s Bucket-Mending & Hymen Emporium” was penned by Nicole Hammersla as a play and produced in San Francisco by the female-driven sketch comedy group, Monday Night Foreplays of PianoFight Productions. From our first viewing in April 2011, we wasted no time in proposing an adaptation, and the original cast became attached shortly thereafter. With production set for early July, we adapted the script, recorded songs, and conducted rehearsals in short order. Filming took place over two days in Half Moon Bay, California. The project proceeded at a strong clip with crew and post-production resources from the San Francisco-based film co-op, Scary Cow Productions.
