Three intrepid, gender non-conforming kids attempt to start a drag club at their middle school. Despite systemic opposition, they get their favorite teacher, who may or may not have his own rocky history with drag, on board with their vision. As they take on the challenges both of drag as an art form and of rattling the cage of their unified school district, they learn as much about themselves and their community as they do about eyelash glue and voguing.
After three cities, two heartbreaks, and a dripping fistful of ridiculous hustles later, Sydney Painter has accepted that she truly is unfit for any lifestyle other than Artiste. After college and a charming interlude in a foreign country, she apprenticed at legendary new play incubator Magic Theatre in San Francisco, dramaturging for some of this century’s most innovative writers. A humorist by birth and a storyteller by training, Sydney will dredge human behavior without judgment and bring humor and compassion to dark, absurd corners. Also, there’s usually always some gender politics and queer theory.
