The Commercially Unviable Queer Trash Theatre Cycle
directed by Charles Quittner
performed by Matthew Hardy, Dillon Heape, Chris Ignacio, Alexander Paris, Brian Reager, Yael Rizowy, Reb Robertson, Ry Szelong, Morgan Sullivan, Colin Waitt, and Magen Young
Presented by Dixon Place as a part of their 25th annual HOT! Festival of queer performance, Kev wrote this play as a part of a personal challenge to write 11 plays in 11 days, each launched from a different prompt pulled from a hat. He wrote 11 plays, several of which didn't fit in with the rest as they were horrifically gory or offensive. Those plays were pulled from the Cycle. Two others just didn't fit. And so we're down to seven, which feels like a good number.
An evening of seemingly unrelated and incredibly violent one-acts that hilariously and tragically consider what it means to be queer in America today, with appearances by a barefoot Contessa, F Scott Fitzgerald, and Wine Moms.
