I have the honor of directing this show at a new outdoor space called Starlight Square. It’s the 6th show in the country to be approved by AEA for in-person performance and audience. Excited to share it with you all!
The First Pineapple and Other Folktales
Written & Performed by Micah Rosegrant
September 16 & 17 at 7:30PM
Presented by Central Square Theater
Part oral history, part play, part concert, The First Pineapple and Other Folktales is the ritual of memory evoked when a queer filipinx poet appears on a stage somewhere in our settler-nation called America. As divides between performance and personhood collide, blur, and flood, we see the author at their most vulnerable, which may also be their most holy. Come witness, exorcise, and dream with author Micah Rosegrant in the hardest folktale they may never tell “right”.
