A touching and provocative story of first love through the eyes of a gender-curious teen, Stacey Gregg’s Scorch was inspired by recent UK cases of ‘gender fraud’. For those who feel they’re not living the right life, online is a place to be yourself. Out in the real world, though, things can be very different.
Join us for an afternoon with a new play read by some of DC’s most talented performers, followed by a post-show discussion with Artistic Director of Theatre, Rex Daugherty.
