SAINT VITUS’ DANCE by Joshua Rebell
Directed by Taylor Nichols
Famous art historian, Gregory Collins, suffering from Huntington’s Disease, tracks down the only doctor in the world rumored to have found a cure – his former lover – who, disgraced from the medical profession, has vowed never to release her findings.  Over the course of a long weekend, secrets from the past are revealed, old sparks are rekindled, and loyalties are put to the test…. ultimately asking the question “What price are we willing to pay for more time to live?”

BISEXUAL SADNESS is about what it sounds like. Faye is getting married to a man, and though she really truly loves him, she wishes he was a woman. She’s not a closeted lesbian. She’s just sad that she’ll have to fight harder to be part of the queer communities she’s always found home in. BISEXUAL SADNESS is about the specific loneliness of being a bisexual woman in love with a man, while staring down the barrel of a lifetime of feeling that way. It takes the meme of the “Sad Bisexual” and treats it with curiosity and respect to interrogate questions of belonging, identity, cultural migrations and kinship. It poses the question: “why do so many people seem to find bisexual women so irritating?” and dares you, the audience, to answer.
