featuring Sara Heifetz, Chandler Hubbard, Daniel Moore and Melissa Johnston Price
A wonderful comedy from the Obie Award-winning author of The Flick and Circle Mirror Transformation. It’s Body Awareness Week at Vermont’s Shirley College, and partners Phyllis and Joyce, and their possibly autistic son Jared, are rocked by a visiting photographer and his ‘male gaze.’ As sexuality, identity, role modeling and political-correctness get stirred up, the results are both touching and hilarious.
