How to Draw a Triangle

Aaron is a musical theatre-obsessed fifth grader who pogo sticks to school and wears a fanny pack at all times. Unable to write legibly or catch a ball, he is sent to work with Ms. Jimenez, a depressed Occupational Therapist. After their initial clash, the two form an unlikely bond. ‘How to Draw a Triangle’ is a comedy about emerging queerness, the wreckage of our past, and the heroes who go out on a limb to help us become ourselves.

    I really adore this play. Aaron just wants the world to love what he loves and Ms. Jimenez just wants him to survive. It's a complicated relationship but their moments together melted my heart. A wonderful memory play that I hope to see produced very soon.

    Aaron is such a charming and relatable nucleus to this story of emerging queerness, awkward friendship, and coming of age. Ms. Jimenez is also smartly drawn and you understand where she is coming from even as she brushes up against and crosses boundaries and goes through her own journey with addiction, identity, self worth, and more. I loved the fluidity of time and space--this is a play that begs to be staged (with ALL of the glorious musical interludes), and the final scene is a poignant piece of punctuation to the narrative.
