Free Street Theater presents Nerds, Sluts, Commies, and Jocks: a new play about labels, power, and the power to challenge who people say you are.
Created by youth age 14-19, Nerds, Sluts, Commies, and Jocks pushes beyond high school politics to examine the way that labels shape our identities from the moment we are born. Boy or Girl? Black or White? Nerd or Jock? Slut or Prune? (Yes, PRUNE.) From a young woman who believes that a comic book about the French philosopher Foucault will change high school forever to the dangers of getting an atom tattoo, Nerds, Sluts, Commies, and Jocks is a fast, funny, and slightly surreal exploration of the way that economics, history, and high school get in the way of “just being yourself.”
May 9 and 10th, 16th and 17th.
Fridays at 6:30, Saturdays at 2:00.
