FLUIDITY PART ONE: MOVEMENT to Present in Staged Reading at NYU Tisch

In the near future, a sexually transmitted disease called APiD (Affected Pulmonary Immune Disorder) has wiped out 85% of the world's heterosexual population. After discovery of the gene for homosexuality, the government began sexual conscription - changing homosexuals (Specials) to heterosexuals (Standards) to repopulate the earth. This initial wave of what the government calls Movement caused many problems, inspiring one doctor to experiment with memory hazing to make the process easier.

Developed by Scottish playwright and Dewar Arts Award winner JD Stewart (Struan) as part of his MFA Thesis in Dramatic Writing from New York University, the staged reading of Fluidity Part One: Movement will take place on Thursday, May 11th, 2017 at 7:30pm in the Goldberg Theatre at the Tisch School of the Arts, 721 Broadway, 7th Floor. The story weaves from the past to the future, ending with acceptance - despite it not being exactly the acceptance each character originally anticipated. Directed by Ashley Wren Collins (Flak House). Starring David Lavine (Orange is the New Black), Kat Heverin, Lori Hammel (Mamma Mia!), Michael Randall (Dis/Connected), Dan Domingues (Run All Night), Paul DeBoy (Mamma Mia!), and Tamara Sevunts (Your Alice).

RSVPs must be sent ahead of time to gain access to the secure building.
