Rats is about queers, butches, lesbians, and a little bit about rats. The show has a non-linear structure. The piece starts with a comparison between rats and King Hamlet. The main character realizes that she already became a ghost –even when she is not dead yet– and she starts obsessing about her ghost and her death. She states: “sometimes your death can be more important than your life.”
Butch Fashion Show in the Femme Auto Body Shop is a witty, satirical exploration of the ups, downs, and sexual charades at play in an urban butch-femme relationship.
