This script is part of the Nimrod 50 Collection
This prescient, detailed and funny work explores queer and lesbian sexual politics, the structures of the legal system, homophobia and childhood trauma. This remarkable play about a young lesbian woman, Theenie, forced into a custody battle for her son, when she and her ex husband Sylvester can’t convince the other members of their families to live and let live. The child, poignantly invisible and voiceless in the play, is bounced back and forth through the personal politics and prejudices of more and more people as they try to get onto the bandwagon, using Theenie and her male child Alabaster, as a political football.
