Drama Minnesota premiere

Jordan Matthews would be fine, if her mother could hold down a decent job, or if her mother hadn't been arrested on another DUI, or if her mother's boyfriend wasn't a skeevy bastard. But things aren't fine, and Jordan's life is falling apart. The adults in her life are either impotent or uninterested, and the only solace comes from out of the blue.

And Then They Fell by Tira Palmquist is a tragic look at the reality that homeless youth face and how that often directly impacts queer youth and victims of abuse however, it does have some quirks and some laughs. Starring Mindy Vang (she/her/hers) from She Kills Monsters is joining us again. Adele Bolier (they/them/theirs) from SPCPA is a relative newcomer to professional theatre but excited to join us for this show. Troy Stolp (he/him/his) who has worked all over the Twin Cities and surrounding suburbs is making his Gadfly debut, as is Kjertina Whiting (they/them/theirs) who's most recently been seen performing at Huge Theater. Rounding out our cast is Starla Larson (she/her/hers) who read for us in our Crown of the Holly Queen staged reading this past December. This incredibly solid cast is the perfect ensemble to tell this important, sometimes fun, ultimately sad story. Save the dates March 17th-19th and 24th-26th!

Incorporated with this show, we are so, so beyond excited to welcome community partners Sexual Violence Center and Avenues for Homeless Youth. Reps from both will be at all shows and talkbacks, and they'll have lots of info about joining them either as a client or a volunteer. We will also be doing a goods drive for Avenues, so start rounding up any unused beauty and hygiene products, clean clothes in good condition, menstrual products, etc.
