I am thrilled to be working with an amazing team of talented, creative folk in this production, really digging into the work. We’re opening soon and I’m really excited to have you experience the premier presentation of this beautiful piece.
Here’s a little about the play:
Set in Brooklyn 2017, PILLOWTALK brings to life one night in the lives of Sam and Buck, a recently married interracial couple. Through a formal exploration of theatrical naturalism and the codified gender norms of ballet’s pas de deux, PILLOWTALK queers the intersections of race, gender, and class to challenge our assumptions of love and marriage. PILLOWTALK confronts the backlash against marriage equality and #BlackLivesMatter, illuminating how liberation and oppression co-exist in our most intimate spaces.
