The Bottoming Process

Two writers meet at a shared co-working space and fall in love — or something like it.  John is nearing middle age, while Milo is flailing through his twenties. John is white — and Milo is definitely not.

Queer people have had our stories ripped away. History is rewritten by the patriarchy. Love shamed where it once blossomed. Power is taken where it should thrive. What if we took back the narrative? Put the queer back in myth? David LeBarron does just this with his new play Monsters. He tells 4 stories from various myths through his intensely queer lens. Embrace the possibility. Monsters? We are heroes.   Check the website for prices, dates, and time
