Brahman/i / by R. Sheth


March 27–May 4, 2014

The Chicago Premiere
Co-Produced with About Face Theatre
Written by Aditi Brennan Kapil
Directed by Andrew Volkoff

In this provocative play masquerading as a stand-up comedy routine, an Indian intersex person explores history, mythology, gender roles. . . and high school. Funny, cynical, inventive and intensely charismatic, Brahman/i takes on more than a dozen unforgettable characters in a fascinating life story that most of us can barely even begin to imagine.
