“Family will always be there”…WON’T THEY?!? But what happens when they disapprove of you, die, or end with your generation? AWARD-WINNING non-binary performer Ren (of comedy “ZE”) grapples with their expectations and disappointments for biological kinship and identity through a fading grandmother, a hyper-religious mother, and a painful fertility disease. Themes feature inter-generational love, loss, and our cross-cultural capacity to bond. “touching, wry, powerful” – Independent Theatre Association. “★★★★★” – FringeFeed zirproductions.com
