Conceived as a surreal comedy, the play takes inspiration from pop culture and pulp entertainment to deliver a poignant and ironic take on the universal need for love.
This production marks the full-length directorial debut for Jess Barbagallo, an acclaimed performer and longtime downtown favorite known for playwriting marked by keen eye for human emotions, queerness in all of its forms and absurdist sense of humor.
