    A cocky gay clown in therapy. A clueless detective. An X Factor sob story.
    Pop culture and queer drama drama drama collide against a rainbow backdrop

    A surreal, fast-paced and darkly funny exploration of a queer relationship gone bad. Blending clowning, drag and a subversive take on the trauma-parading solo show, plewds is about the lengths we’ll go to avoid what’s right in front of us, in a story where the villains don’t look like villains. 

    Being queer is the best, right?
