Unit Set/Multiple Settings

Three homeless friends — a Filipina-American with a hidden past, a Filipina transsexual, and a Puerto Rican hustler — struggle on the Chicago streets to scrounge up enough cash to bus it to San Francisco before the winter cold hits. But when a bearded man on a quest, a mystery man in sunglasses, a wealthy john, and a doughnut shop's spell-casting assistant manager put their hopes and friendships to the test, the trio find they must spare some change of a far queerer kind.


REVIEWS

"Large, loud, and complex—at times deeply funny, at times deeply disturbing...it is at once movingly optimistic and cruelly cynical..it is, in fact, great theatre." – NYTheatre.com, Read More

"The play successfully...gets its hands dirty with the hard truths about internalized homophobia, and the traumas a variety of societies and families inflict on anyone who is sexually different...an intelligent look at the twisted thinking that makes that word a potent tool for abuse and control...an engaging, rich play that, though sometimes difficult, is finally deeply rewarding." - DramaQueen.com, Read More


Thunder Above, Deeps Below premiered at the Barrow Group Theatre in New York City in 2009. It was produced by Second Generation theatre company.
