Come out, come out, whoever you are, to the...


Written & performed by Meg Anderson
Directed and produced by Rachael Himsel

On National Coming Out Day, for one night only, Meg Anderson will present the show that took the San Francisco Queer Solo fest by storm this summer:

"Deeply-felt, thoughtful, entertaining, creative, funny and moving piece. What you want live theatre to be.
- Julia Gieseke, producer of San Francisco 2019 Queer Solo Fest

Told through comedy, original music, dance and storytelling, Meg takes us on the coming-out journey of a midwestern preacher's daughter, from her first terrifying, "Oh no, I'm gay!" to the daily femme lesbian experience of, "Trust me, I'm gay."

Produced by Rachael Himsel, this one-night-only show will end in a rocking dance party and a colorful celebration of National Coming Out Day. So bring your sparkles and come out to the ball!
