Originally performed at the Nordlof Center in Rockford, upon request now at Winneshiek Playhouse in Freeport.
This daring play explores the concepts of identity, perception, and bias as well as many others. In the play, Ben the main character explores his sexuality with another character Chris. Ben then struggles with being seen as himself instead of being labeled as a stereotype.
Who you are should not be determined by your sexual identity, orientation, race, religion, or where we are from. America has become so divided over this very issue in recent light. With this show I hope to spread the message of acceptance. I hope this show will teach us how to look beyond labels and to look at people for people for who they are as an individual instead of judging themes “what” they are.
