Bread Crumbs [MAP's Night Off with Jasmine Joshua]
The MAP Gang is taking the night off, and inviting Jasmine Joshua to guide us all on this trek through the forest. A little bit stand-up, a little bit a Moth story, and a little bit Great Theatre(tm), Jasmine covers everything from traversing transgender discovery to puking and peeing your pants in front of VIPs. We travel with Jasmine from the beginning as they desperately search for clues from their past to "prove" their trans-ness, to present day where the only proving they do is bread dough. (Just kidding, they don't bake.)
This is an active work-in-progress, and the evening will include a performance and a guided conversation with the audience, which Jasmine will absorb and feedback into each next performance. This iteration of the show expands upon the version originally developed at the Seattle workshop series The Scratch last summer with director Eddie DeHais.

They studied with the Larry Moss Studio, the Groundlings, and Jet City Improv. They graduated magna cum laude with a BA in Creative Writing from the University of California, Santa Cruz.

MORE ABOUT ... MAP's NIGHT OFF
Once a mainstage show opens, MAP only needs the theatre on performance nights. What happens to the theatre on all those other nights? When the MAPs away the mice will play! In this case, the mice are trusted and fierce creative voices in our community who have an idea and simply need a space to work it out. MAP provides the space and some production assistance, and our partner provides the magic.
