    "THIS IS SO GOOD!!!! It is superbly written and wonderfully acted, what a story and a journey, so funny and moving and honest. Just brilliant!!" - Playwright Penelope Skinner

    Despite Lucho’s best efforts to lay low and keep his head down, he can’t seem to go a day without getting teased or beaten at school. But after he comes across Cassandro: the "Liberace of the Lucha Libre", Lucho discovers that the solution to his problem lies within the world of Mexican Wrestling. Testosterono is born - and he's here to win.

    This funny and heartfelt one-man show is an unpacking of why Lucho's fighting, how he got there, and why he’s wearing a mask. The story is told bilingually through the lens of Mexican Wrestling and golden-age Disney Channel.

    "A queer coming of age story that will make you laugh and make you cry. Beautifully realized and a true tour-de-force performance. This is an absolute masterpiece and must see."
