When Remy, a black man, finds himself not only the owner of his late husband’s drive-in, but also the guardian of his straight, white teenage son, the two forge a relationship around the classic horror movies they regularly screen for the public. However, the grief they harbor over their shared loss threatens to fracture their bond just when they need each other the most. Written by San Diego’s most exciting emerging playwright, this haunting, funny, and loving story about race, sexuality, and family reveals the monsters and saviors we discover in each other.
Season 37 celebrates Diversionary’s legacy of chosen family with a focus on community engagement, arts education, and an inspired program of new and classic work examining family dynamics and legacy, utilizing all three of its performance venues: the Robert L. Granat & Alfred J. Mazur Mainstage Theatre, the Reuel K. Olin New Play Development Center, and the Clark Cabaret & Bar.
