Strong Female Protagonist is a comedic, queer solo performance that prioritizes the power of femininity and sass. Little Wayne grows up wanting to be a pop diva, and when he grows up and becomes a drag queen called Feyonce, he struggles with self-doubt and is taken to an appropriation fantasy. He is judged by Judith Butler, his ego, and his mother until he lets go of his dreams and finds a new lineage. One part autobiography, one part 1980s nostalgia, one part drag fantasy, this queer solo performance celebrates the powerful feminine role models to which we all looked up.
Strong Female Protagonist was developed during residences at PLAYA Summer Lake, The Sou’wester Arts, and the Lambda Literary Writers Retreat for Emerging LGBT Voices. This project has received support from RACC (Regional Arts and Culture Council), PNCA (Pacific Northwest College of Art), WESTAF, Ford Family Foundation, Oregon Arts Commission, Flock PDX, Gage Academy of Art, On the Boards, and the Risk/Reward Festival.
