The Whip-poor-will

A short play about transphobia, learning from one’s mistakes, and a talking bird.

The video was filmed in the beautiful and historic Merrick Barn. The people in the video are (left to right) Kirsten Choi (Faith), Mark Gonzales (George), Kenzie Christiansen (Whip-poor-will), and Liesel Arauz Vallecillo (Director/Stage Directions) (not pictured, me, Gemma Watson, playwright, and the ever-helpful camera op Madison Epner).
