F*ck You, John Lennon! (World Premiere)

Wednesday - Saturday | 8 p.m.

August 12, 2017


Originality is dead and so is John Lennon... maybe. May, a performance artist, struggles to find her unique voice in the world and accidentally summons the spirit of John Lennon into her apartment. Sounds cool, right? Turns out JL can be a bit of a dick. May’s roommate, Christian (waiter by day, drag queen ‘Yoko Homo’ by night), is tired of paying rent for both. A new, unoriginal play that explores the pointlessness of uniqueness. Written and directed by Kallie Noelle Rolison.
