Tabook to the touch
A fire in the cold
That was us
Despite appearances, this isn't a book you're holding.
This is a stage, with a soaring painting taking shape before your eyes,
a big-booty poet at the mike, and a seal right in front, just for you.
This is a place where wise old ladies live and boys act like horses.
This is a vision of love that was crushed and brought back to life.
And this is my story, I'm Orphea Proud.
Welcome to the show.
Sharon Dennis Wyeth's lyrical story unfolds as a dramatic performance, starring the sharp, resilient, and poetic Orphea Proud. As Orphea, who discovers her sexuality as a lesbian, shares her story with the audience, powerful questions of family, prejudice, and identity are explored. In a society that is often ruled by convention. Orphea's honest and gripping tale will be an inspiration to all those who champion individuality.
