Laced

The night after a queer bar outside of Tampa, Florida is vandalized, three twenty-something bartenders gather to grieve, riot, and above all, piece together the events of the night before. Fiery and poetic, LACED ferociously celebrates the spaces in which we find our truest selves.

    This is a fierce and beautiful play! The irregular rhythms and hilarious/human patterns of everyday speech are captured so well here in three dynamic and distinct characters who live at identity intersections consistently and unfortunately neglected in produced work. That finely-tuned realism is counterbalanced by some glorious poetry towards the end of the piece with two of the most wonderful monologues I've read in a while which gave me the chills. The theatrical conceits of cleaning the bar throughout, the time jumps, and the aural landscape heighten the theatricality of the piece. Hope to see this produced soon!
