ABOUT: “Mommy Queerest” is a comedic, autobiographical, one-woman show written by Kat Evasco and John Caldon, performed by Kat Evasco, and directed by John Caldon. This new work chronicles the coming out process of a lesbian daughter and a closeted lesbian mother, illustrating how the reclaiming of their sexuality challenges and strengthens their relationship. Mounted as a solo performance, “Mommy Queerest” aims to celebrate sexuality, eradicate homophobia and break cycles of abuse.
Kat tackles conflict with humorous insight, while illustrating the experience of being a Filipina lesbian, gay Christian, survivor of sexual abuse and young American just trying to get some. “Mommy Queerest” contributes a voice that actively imparts the message of empowerment and inspires an intergenerational discourse among diverse communities. Her use of comedy invites the audience to laugh at the darkest human conditions, while providing a critical lens through which to analyze the detrimental effects of homophobia in our society. This play stems from the belief that silence enables homophobia and perpetuates cycles of abuse. With an in-your-face approach, Kat cuts through any pretense and dives into the core of these matters by placing her and her mother’s personal experiences of struggle and triumph center stage.
This show is recommended for those 18 and over due to mature content and language. Please use parent/guardian discretion in purchasing a ticket for minors.
See you all there!
