"Stonewall Jackson coughs, and out comes glitter." Stonewallin' is a queer coming-of-age story in the American South full of witchcraft, war re-enactors, and ghosts. The winner of the inaugural So.Queer Playwriting Contest, Stonewallin' explores the gap between symbolic politics and material politics in racial history and offers an account of attraction rarely seen on stage.
The witches are up to something in the small-town South. When Marsha moves from Berkeley to Virginia to reconnect with her family’s roots, she finds a barista with an astrology obsession, a Confederate monument gone missing, and the makings of a bisexual love story — if she wants it. With humanity, humor, and as many layers as a biscuit, this new play explores the families we choose, the families we don’t, and the folks making magic in a changing South.
To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.
What if theatre weren't a mirror reflecting the familiar, but an opening into unknown territory? What if there were no fourth wall?
What if, instead of going to the theatre to watch a play, you crossed the threshold into the world of the play to experience it?
Theatre that expands the imagination and extends the conventional boundaries of language, structure, space, and performance that challenges the conventional notions of what theatre is.
What sort of theatre would this be?
