ColLab: Truth, Dare, or Lesbian

TRUTH DARE OR LESBIAN. An interactive musical comedy by Emily Drossell. A pink and orange spotlight illuminates a concrete wall at night. White text is on top, with LESBIAN glowing.

May 18 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

At a sleepover nearly two decades ago, a group of girls were deciding on their next game, when suddenly– it hit them: “truth, dare…or lesbian.” Everyone agreed…and then no one chose “lesbian.” Years later, former sleepover participant Emily Drossell is committed to realizing the game that never fully came to be (and making up for her belated queer awakening). And what better way to do so than through interactive musical comedy?

Ask some truths, request your dares, and offer any and all interpretations of the “lesbian” option as we play a round of the always original “Truth, Dare, or Lesbian!”

Select responses will be devised into the show! Buy a ticket and/or fill out this google form to give Emily a Truth, Dare or Lesbian, and you just might see your response turned into a song. Sleep tight. Don’t let the les-bugs bite.
