A NEW KIND OF WHOLE Comes to Philly Fringe!
Up and coming playwright, Paige Zubel (Houston, TX: Gel Us, In Full Bloom, NYC: Dead Meat, The Pull of the Moon, and Scotland: Under Covers), has written a new play intended to highlight finding the best path through mental illness for each individual and normalizing queerness in media and life. Additionally, this show is headed by a production team of all queer folks.
Co-Produced by Zubel and Eleanor Safer (After Last Call...or How To Make A Play In 24 Hours), directed by Claris Park (Resident at Asian Arts Initiative through the Philadelphia Asian Performing Artists), and starring Jack Henry (Peter and the Starcatcher, Sensitive Guys, The Gap), Aizhaneya Carter (Acting Apprentice at Williamstown Theatre Festival), and Emily Moylan (Trigger Warning), this piece will explore identity through sexuality and the relationship between the mind and the body. While this show revolves around and is specifically aimed at young, queer girls/women, it should help everyone know that they are not alone and that they are stronger than they or others may believe.
