Message From The Artist:
Well, we just finished our tech rehearsal and I can safely say you don't want to miss this show. Johnny and Caz breathe such beautiful life into this play. It is endearing, fun, and a true celebration of trans joy.
I also got a chance to preview the other plays featured during the festival, and so many of them are also beautiful, funny, powerful, and poignant. It promises to be a good night of theatre!
Oh, and did I mention that the festival is also a contest?! See details on how to cast your vote below.
You can purchase tickets to either date through the link above - I'd love to see you there!
Here's how the festival competition works:
- Each play will perform twice and, based on a cumulative audience vote, one piece from each weekend will move on to the Finals.
- Additionally, two other pieces with the next highest votes from their weekend will also move on, for a total of six Finalists.
- The six Finalists will perform during one last showcase on November 18th.
- The showcase will be judged by a panel of theatre professionals, comprised of playwrights, actors, producers, and directors.
- Once the final votes are in, the top three scores for the evening will walk away with cash prizes in the amount of $500, $250, or $100.

"Like the Sea" is a heartfelt play that explores the deep bond between two trans men, Amadi ( Johnny Gottsegen) and Yung (Caz Kingsley), as they vacation to celebrate Amadi's recent top surgery. Set on a hotel balcony in a tropical location, the play delves into their personal journeys and emotions surrounding gender transition. Through candid conversations and a spontaneous act of vulnerability, they find solace, support, and a profound sense of freedom.
