Recently disowned by his parents, young trans man Jo dives onto the LGBT+ scene and meets a merry band of queers that welcome him wholehearted into their community. But just as Jo discovers new ways to love himself and others in the warehouse paradise of his dreams, the loss of a pivotal member leaves the found family floundering to face their daunting and uncertain future. Facing disability, depression, unemployment and the staggering rent situation, the newest member of the do-it-yourself queer community finds it difficult to do it all by himself, and equally difficult to ask for help. Define your existence. Stage your resistance. Several of the hottest emerging playwrights in the Bay Area -- students Yawn, Kayl Frayre, Nicole Jost and Julius Rea -- present transformative stories for unsettling times in the annual Greenhouse Theatre Festival. Staged readings of new work. Free food will be served.
