Mimi is an eccentric sculptor whose longtime lover Clay has absconded with a model from his figure drawing class. In order to get back at him (or perhaps to get him back?) Mimi enlists the help of her lovestruck assistant Bootbutt to create a lifesize statue of Clay. While Mimi is out of the studio at a Blood Moon celebration, Bootbutt invites his friend Simmer to keep him company as he works, and the two are caught in a bind as Clay returns to pick up a poncho.

Formally, Homunculus is an attempt to recreate the screwball farces of Elizabethan and Jacobean England— it is written in loose iambic verse and is packed with twists, schemes, and slapstick— but its content is largely contemporary, addressing itself to the murkiness of open relationships, internet gossip, and art world clout.
