This year we are thrilled to see two plays in development. Toilet Talks, a semi-autobiographical play by Liz Thomsen about a mother and daughter, has had a table read, and is now reading for a staged reading. Audiences will get to experience the journey not only of the characters but also of the plays themselves as they move through the development process. Each play considers the life experience and showcase voices not often heard.
Toilet Talks is a fictional play about Hannah, a queer, Vietnamese adoptee and her white mother. After 20 years in Chicago, Hannah returns to Indiana to do temporary eldercare. Set mostly in the bathroom, they tackle issues about adoption, race, gender identity and expression, and sexuality.
