When friends die and pronouns change, what’s left of the memories that don’t fit anymore? A moving autobiographical account of growing up queer in the mid-naughties, finding yourself, and losing a friend. Brought to life with storytelling, an original pop music score and way too many America’s Next Top Model references.
Written and performed by Tabby Lamb. Co-produced by HighTide.
