A Drunk Lesbian Love Affair
They’re young. They’re drunk. They’re in love…until they sober up. A Drunk Lesbian Love Affair chronicles the escapades of Sally and her “drunk lesbian lover” through a haze of whiskey and wine. A one-person show, performed and penned by Gonzalez Kane explores the vulnerability of love and sexuality, queerness and coming into one’s own. This tender-hearted comedy combines millennial discourse with poeticism in the search for a sober love.
Written and performed by: Thalia Gonzalez Kane
How well do we really know our parents? Gwen, the daughter of a cellist, discovers her father’s letters after his death. The letters bring to light the intimacy between her father and the cello-maker, Bill. As Gwen reflects on his silent devotion to his beloved cello, she realises the sacrifice her father made for his family.
