Blue is forced away from his party-monster life to find his twin brother, Skinny, who missed an important doctor’s appointment in the city. He’s sick and won’t get better—especially if he keeps smoking on the low. As Blue tries to take care of Skinny, they both find themselves attracted to the elusive and surreal Poet next door who brings meaning back into their lives as death approaches.
Laterality, a poetic play told in a Prologue and two Losses, takes place inside the surreal, tough, and intimate world that comes into being when a life’s about to end.
This production contains adult language. Smoking will occur on stage with the use of non-tobacco electronic cigarettes.
