Boy Trouble

Amoris Projects
May 16 – 27, 2023 | Studio Theatre

Kay and Anthony have a lot in common. As two of the only gay kids in their town, their paths cross over years of casual encounters and missed connections – but some things only stay on the DL for so long. Boy Trouble is a cutting, playful, and surprising interrogation of toxic masculinity and casual sex in the Grindr age.

This entirely reimagined production expands the original story of Boy Trouble across multiple characters and multiple years, debuting the two-actor version of the Fringe Festival hit.

Evandalism, a new theatre play written by Henry RedCloud Andrade (writer and co-creator of the North American touring success Bear Grease), follows RedCloud’s life growing up as an Indigenous youth in East LA as he finds his passion for music as a performer, writer, and artist. A high-energy one-person storytelling performance rooted in hip-hop, Evandalism explores the intersection between theatre, music, projection, and visual art.

World Premiere

Freaky Green Eyes

January 10 – 21, 2023 | Backstage Theatre

Franky Pierson knows something has begun. A shift in the air and a new family schedule. Stapled on smiles—until her mother vanishes. Adrift, Franky must piece together the facts to discover the truth of the situation, guided by her inner voice—Freaky Green Eyes. Part coming of age story, part mystery, Freaky Green Eyes asks questions about domestic abuse and the lengths we will go to avoid seeing what is right in front of us.
