I AM NOT I is a new play by Laura Abbott. It tells the story of a 15-year-old biracial girl living in recession-stricken America, forced to confront gender dysphoria by her looming quinceanera. She (or, rather, he) not only faces opposition from family, but also from an equally shocked lesbian girlfriend. How much control do we really have over our identities? Do we have any say in who we are? If not, is it possible to create who we become?
A staged reading of this play is being directed by Chrysta Naron at Shetler Studios on June 16th-18th. If you are able to, please help us pay for space, props, and (most importantly) help us compensate the artists involved! Check out the incentives on our Indiegogo page and see what you can get in return for helping us (besides the satisfaction of knowing you contributed to creating important art!)
