Bite My Thumb

Bite My Thumb

East West Theatre at ShanghaiPRIDE Theatre Festival

BITE MY THUMB 
BY Carolyn Gage

Are you ready for a new kind of “Romeo and Juliet?”East West Theatre presents “Bite My Thumb,” a reinvention of the popular story into a modern-day gay love triangle, setting two ‘gangs’ of off-off-Broadway productions against each other in a flamboyant subversion of traditional gender roles.
Female-to-male transgender meets lesbian cross-dressing, and lesbian butch squares off against male machismo, in this swashbuckling comedy that takes place for two performances only on June 18.”Bite My Thumb” is written by Carolyn Gage, a multiple award-winning playwright and activist who specializes in non-traditional roles for women.
Produced by Shanghai’s longest-running theatre company, East West Theatre, as part of the ShanghaiPRIDE Theatre Festival, this play marks the third anniversary of working with ShanghaiPRIDE and looks to be a particular crowd pleaser with its action and spectacle.
May the best Romeo win, whether he’s a she or she’s a he!
