“The cracks can still be showing and that’s ok. New and old at the same time.”
Crave Productions is thrilled to announce the New York premiere of At Birth in the Queerly Festival as their final stop on a rolling international premiere tour.
What could possibly go wrong when one drunken night Anna, very gay, and Isaac, very very gay, have sex to heal from a breakup? What follows is a journey covering themes of queer families, abortion rights in the South, and the pursuit of building community, no matter how untypical. This queer dark comedy navigates blurred family lines, friendship, and dealing with the unexpected consequences life can throw at a person.
"At Birth takes a fresh look at modern friendship and parenthood, and
the joys/perils that come along with each. Brisk and engaging, this show
tells a complex story in a compact way and puts the focus exactly where
it should be - on the story."
-Paul Conroy, Artistic Director of Out Front Theatre Company
At Birth is written, performed, and designed by Atlantic Acting School alumni Ty Autry (A Southern Fairytale) a genderqueer Southern creative, and Thalia Gonzalez Kane (A Drunk Lesbian Love Affair) a queer, Ecuadorian-Canadian multidisciplinary artist, and theatre scholar. Collectively, they've performed in North America, Australia, and Europe numerous times, garnering multiple awards and critical acclaim for their work on elevating queer voices.
Directing the production is Atlanta-based, award-winning director Melissa Foulger (Artistic Director, DramaTech). Rounding out the creative team is Intimacy Director, Monty Davis (Atlanta-based fight and intimacy choreographer) and Dramaturge, Kat Sandler (Toronto-based award-winning playwright and screenwriter).
At Birth has toured to the International Dublin Gay Theatre (Dublin, Ireland), Barons Court Theatre (London, United Kingdom), Prague Fringe Festival (Prague, Czech Republic), Out Front Theatre Company (Atlanta, GA), and Elite Studio Works (Nashville, TN).
