What is the real difference between gay and straight? Do we decide who we love? Where does friendship end and romance begin? Secondhand Theatre Company presents a new play by Christopher Travlos—“Two Princes”: the story of two young men navigating their way through their sexual desires. Watch the friendship of Reid and Mitchell reach the breaking point as orientation is challenged, friendships are broken around them, and lies are told to each other and to themselves. Is their bond strong enough to survive sexual need? Or will it crumble in front of them, unable to withstand the fluidity of sexuality?
Where is your hometown? Berkeley, California
What was the last show that you worked on and where? Writing wise–workshopped this very piece in Montreal at McGill University. Acting–last piece was Slaughterhouse-5 at the Fringe Festival 2013.
Why submit to a festival like this? Festivals like this keep new and fresh playwrights and plays happening! Without emerging and smaller festivals (with big support) there would be no outlets for those of us who need a hand making connections and meeting new faces.
PERFORMANCE: August 17th at 7:00 PM
