MERISM: Reading of a New Puppet Play by MJ Kaufman

Merism, a new play from Foundry Playwright MJ Kaufman, will be read in collaboration with stadium-praxis puppet theater this Monday at Studio 34. The reading is directed by Foundry Mentor Sally Ollove. Check it out!

Nina’s a 4.0 high school senior from a privileged family but when her mom won’t get out of bed she goes looking for parenting and support at a queer and trans youth drop-in center. She quickly bonds with Bo, the only other transperson she sees and, as they become friends, urges him to come stay with her and her mom. MERISM tells the story of three transpeople whose lives become inextricably connected.

8pm Monday 12/9
In the Backspace at Studio 34
Funded by a generous donation from the Leeway Foundation Art and Change Grant
