  • Conversations
  • ‘Conversations’ is comprised of two monologues and tackles heavy themes like suicide, self harm, and addiction. Yet, it somehow manages to also shout for joy and love and a luster for life. It is woven into a monologue that explores sexuality, questioning heteronormativity, and one’s own repressed desires. Overall, it’s an intimate look into a woman’s life as she attempts to “show us the person [she] is in her journal.”**All in attendance must adhere to the COVID guidelines that apply to this show.

  • The Reparations Show
  • WHAT HAVE YOU DONE FOR US LATELY?If you don’t have a good answer, we’ll send you our Venmo username.The Reparations Show is a variety show that will center stories created by and about Black and Indigenous artists. This weekly show kicks off on Juneteenth as part of FRIGID New York’s Queerly Festival, and each week will be hosted by a different BIPOC artist. The show is the brainchild of Erez Ziv, managing artistic director of FRIGID New York, and Kevin R. Free, the Curator of The Queerly Festival. It was created as a way to offer paid opportunities for BIPOC artists. Besides featuring work by these artists, each episode will include a segment called “This Week in Reparations” that examines an organization’s statement of solidarity with the #BLACKLIVESMATTER movement and keeps track of the work they have done toward that goal since releasing the statement.  **All in attendance must adhere to the COVID guidelines that apply to this show.

  • ALL MY DEAD UNCLES
  • ALL MY DEAD UNCLES is a naracissistic nepotic self-effacing deepdiving long-winded political/familial/parodical cathartic comi-tragic backstory of one woman’s collection of dead uncles. There are run-on sentences. There are jokes. There is also a minor amount of theatrical magic, but mostly it’s one queer woman on stage for less than 45 minutes explaining how all of her uncles died.**All in attendance must adhere to the COVID guidelines that apply to this show.
