Seizure and Sensory warning
This show contains a strobe effect and bright lights.


This show broke barriers and created conversations in its original production in 1998, but has since gained different context and nuance in wake of the current political and social environment. Please take care of yourself in engaging with the show and the difficult representations it makes, and that it includes discussions of sexual assault, transphobia, foul language, and substance abuse.

We at Museum of Intrigue strive to create a safe space for all. If you have any questions or concerns surrounding this show or its themes, please contact us directly at we will be happy to open a conversation.

There will be talkbacks available to you on our Thursday night productions. These will be mediated by a representative from Accept Oswego, a local LGBTQIA+ organization.
