East West Theatre Presents Bite My Thumb

East West Theatre Presents

Bite My Thumb by Carolyn Gage (Part of the ShanghaiPRIDE Theatre Festival)

The East West Theatre presents a performance of "Bite My Thumb," by Carolyn Gage, a multiple award-winning playwright and activist who specializes in non-traditional roles for women. This production sees a reinvention of Romeo and Juliet into a modern-day gay love triangle, setting two "gangs" of off-off-Broadway productions against each other in a flamboyant subversion of traditional gender roles. Female-to-male transgender meets lesbian cross-dressing and lesbian butch squares off against male machismo in this swashbuckling comedy that runs for two performances on 18 June.

May the best Romeo win, whether he's a she or she's a he!

Two performances on Thursday 18 June only. Doors open at 7:30 and 9pm. Showings at 8 and 9:30pm. The show is in English with Chinese subtitles. RMB 120, comes with a free drink.
