Ballast is the world premiere of a new play by Georgette Kelly, directed by Matt Morrow at the third oldest LGBTQ Theatre in the country, Diversionary Theatre.

How do we become who we are? In an investigation of identification and intimacy, Ballast intertwines the story of two relationships between trans and cisgender partners as they grapple with the stranger they find across the dinner table and in the mirror. This cutting-edge new play skydives into personal identity, navigating intricate dreamscapes to explore how gender shapes our spirituality, desires and destiny.

“The strength of the play is largely that of its projection designer, Tara Knight, who’s created a vivid suite of imagery that’s haunting, absurd, and frightening in turns, on top of being skillfully individualized for four different psyches.”

“… a fluid production that shifts quickly between locales and between reality and fantasy (credit projections by Tara Knight for enabling the fantasy sequences).”
