In self-made martyr, Hannah Burke, a queer, non-binary performance artist/musician/self-proclaimed "theatrical experiment facilitator" grapples with the anti-hero. An exploration of empathy and palatability - they'll ask you to consider how much you can forgive and how much you should. Content warnings: gender dysphoria, body dysmorphia, eating disorders, suicidal ideation, and heartbreak.
