This Bug Is Gay
by Genevieve Simon and Katherine Wilkinson
THIS BUG IS GAY: a solo queer cabaret, performed entirely in German, using Kafka’s The Metamorphosis to explore how language both liberates and limits us. A work-in-progress excerpt!
Written and performed by Genevieve Simon
Directed by Katherine Wilkinson
Dramaturgical support from Elizagrace Madrone
by Kelsey Sullivan
Worm is quite happy being a just that: a worm. However, there is one thing missing – this worm wants teeth. And you, yes you, are going to help it get them! Follow along on Worm’s journey as it meets old friends, sings some songs, and discovers how far it’s willing to go for some pearly whites.
In the end, it is up to you – will you help Worm get the teeth it wants? Or will you take things a step further and help it get what it really needs?
Director – Alex Moon
Worm – Alexandra Hess
Dentist – Abrah Katzman
Frog/Fox/Bug – Caroline Younglove

Witch & The…
by Scout Davis
Witch & the…dramatizes a singular scene on repeat from a middle school production of Lion, Witch and The Wardrobe in 2008 where I played Edmund and Tiffany Trump played the White Witch in Calabasas, California. This public meditation examines and exorcizes my relationship with Tiffany and our estrangement these past years.
created and performed by Scout Davis

An unexpecting mother in a fever dream incited by the greek god Pan, dislodges an inert mass and releases chaotic self destructive energies to facilitate a rebirth, a return to the body.
