"I wrote this play so I could spend more time with my work crush," exclaims Stevenson. "He was leaving the job, and I knew he was an actor, so I wrote this play for him and I to star in. He read the script, declined, and I haven't seen him since. I then did some rewrites, and I found out that this play is basically commenting on male toxicity. And just because a man is gay or non-binary, that doesn't mean they can't be toxic."
Presented by Blue Vanity Productions in association with Theater Asylum. Written; produced and directed by Lorne Stevenson. Starring Jared Gaxiola, Raphael Buenaventura and Lorne Stevenson.
