Drama. LGBT Studies. COLD HEAVEN is two plays with an introduction by the author. "Developing the piece in rehearsal was like driving into a hallucination that was clearly mine, and not mine." Sometimes Dead Is Better and Bye Bye Brunhilde are both plays that have the dissonant, radical beauty of poetry. Eileen Myles called Bye Bye Brunhilde "not a play but an exploding poem by a bright new writer from the West Coast." In it ("strange, sexy and abstract"--Lynne Tillman), the two women lovers are named Fear and Technique, and are not just morality figures of love but hallucinations of the viewers and listeners.
