About this event

"The other day I told someone I didn't think anyone did 69 between the ages of eighteen and fifty. Before you know what you're doing, and again when you really know what you're doing."

Meet Billie. 19. Hilariously self-aware and hopelessly naive. She's at the age where every single new thing she experiences causes her to entirely reassess her life, and the newest thing to happen to her, is Amal.

Billie is beginning to understand that most of her actions exacerbated a delicate universe Amal was already aware of - the politics of being the only black man in a white space. Katherine Sortini's captivating, compelling performance grapples with honesty and responsibility; how far we are bound by our own realities and the intricacies of truly being heard.

Presented by:
