Meat Suit

A reading of a new play


Written by Lillian Bornstein
Directed by Kari Barclay
Featuring Julio Chávez, Tabatha Gayle, Daniela Soto Brenner, Jeffrey Robb, and Jessie Tidball
Developed in a course with Young Jean Lee

When two souls meet at a body struggles support group, they try to come to terms with their chronic pain and gender dysphoria (portrayed by a teddy bear and evil clown, respectively). As their love grows, they try to escape their bodies entirely through the arcane art of “astral planing.” But what does love mean outside a body? The play offers an absurdist take on how we are to treat this meat suit we drag around with us every day.
