Girl: A Gender Expression
by Ezra Brain (they/them/theirs)
An experimental exploration of gender from a very subjective point-of-view. Girl seeks to explore the political, social, and professional experiences of being not just a trans person but a specific trans person. Mixing dialogue, speeches, dance sequences, and everything in between, Girl is a radical demand for specificity, self-acceptance, and a deconstruction of the traditional ways that plays are created that attempts to shock, enrage, comfort, and challenge its audience. And maybe it’s also funny?
by Nina Ki (she/her/hers)
by Josh Levine (he/him/his)
A humorous family drama that explores what happens when a conflict over religious beliefs causes a rift in a tight-knit Jewish family and how that trauma resonates twenty-five years into the future.
by Zachariah Ezer (he/him/his)
Two boys learn to let go of themselves and grab onto each other during their last hot Texas summer before college.
