The play examines America’s obsession with gender constructs, the lack of response to the HIV/AIDS crisis of the 1980s and 90s, and sensationalistic attitudes towards murder and violence. Described by actress Anita Durst as “Serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer meets Andy Warhol in Heaven,” the play critiques American institutionalized racism and homophobia, popular culture and challenges audiences’ expectations of the theater experience.
