a highly original queercrip production
From Stage Left & SMashing Stereotypes: non-normalizing disability theatre since 1999.
We're putting the sexual politics of disability on full-frontal display - in this contemporary homage to a vaudevillian era, with a few new twists added in along the way.
Closet Freaks cheekily strips away the spent symbols of "over-coming tragedy" and exposes the barriers 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 "man up".
