Gender and sexual identity are at the center of Arts Collective’s eighth original play, devised by the actors and creative team. These stories will speak to how we see each other, how we want to be seen, how we simply are – through self-discovery, censorship, provocation and appropriation. This original work will engage, expand, and continue this necessary, ever-evolving, ever-revolving conversation.

* Parental Guidance Note: TBD

F.A.Q. = About AC's Original Works Process:
AC’s unique original works process (this will be AC's 8th+) are absolutely our favorite, most artistically fulfilling projects!
o AC’s original productions are developed during the rehearsal process via rehearsed improv, music, movement, and more… with the ENTIRE company! A process which has been celebrated as magical, exciting, artistically fulfilling!
o A Work in Progress: Our original works are works in progress, developed throughout the rehearsal process… however, once a story-line is decided, characters gelled - the production is “set in stone”. 
o Scenes within our original productions may be scripted, however, many require simple outlines, with little to no memorization. This tried and true formula has served our processes magically and beautifully.
