MARCH 22: Virgo by Éamon Boylan
Virgo explores the binaries of queer intimacy, as one trans artist struggles to overcome their fear of penetration. What does it mean to give yourself or receive another? Reconciling childhood nostalgia, the music of John Adams, and astrology, this play asks audiences to generously listen, to receptively remember.
MARCH 29: The Cantor’s Tale by Fengar Gael
The repression of latent sexual desires drives a priest to wreak havoc in the lives of a renegade seminarian and his fiancee.
APRIL 4: Who’s There? by Owen Panettieri
