God Don Like Ugly
God Don Like Ugly
Esme loves to sing and dance, dressing up in costumes, performing her 'Golden Oldies' to an imaginary audience. Today is Esme's 36th birthday and because she has the mental age of a seven year old, she still lives with her tired and overwhelmed mother, Bessie, (a tarot reader) in a dilapidated old crumbling home, set in the rural South. Esme has a twin, not seen for quite awhile. Heartsick Bessie yearns for the twin, who's 'the okay one' to come home to celebrate. This will never happen and only Esme seems to understand this. A stranger, on the run, named SJ, enters their small lives, seeking to hide from a violent partner. She encounters the extraordinary, both in the human beings who live there as well as their magic of simply 'being'. A realistic (but magical) tragicomedy set in America's rural south, with intermittent Physical Theatre Scenes.
