POLY QUEER LOVE BALLAD

by Anais West and Sara Vickruck

Winner of the PTC Fringe New Play Prize, the Fringe Critics Choice Award and Pick of the Fringe

Nominated for two Jessie Richardson Awards for Outstanding Original Script and Outstanding Production of a Musical

Poly Queer Love Ballad is a bold, intimate new musical, merging slam poetry with catchy pop-folk tunes. Nina, a polyamorous bisexual poet, meets Gabbie, a monogamous lesbian songwriter, at a Cafe Deux Soleils. With two microphones, a loop pedal, and array of instruments, they struggle to reconcile their fierce mutual attraction with their opposing perspectives on love. The show explores polyamory and queerness, while aiming to create a new representation of intimacy that isn’t confined by genre, medium or societal obligations.
