a highly original queercrip production
From Stage Left: non-normalizing disability theatre since 1999. . .
Stage Left puts the sexual politics of disability on display in this contemporary homage to a vaudevillian era.
Closet Freaks cheekily strips away the spent symbols of "over-coming tragedy" to reveal the barriers that two male misfits have to navigate, before they can let loose their lust for each other.
It's lit a hot spark between them and set their sexual sauciness on fire. But will society put its foot down and snuff out their flames?
Closet Freaks puts that question to bed! As a dynamic duo in drag, Alan Shain & Troy Emery Twigg crip and queer the body politic, through a raucous celebration of disability as desirability that gleefully disrupts common ideas of just what it means to "be a man".
