 Info






















The Plumbing Tree is a three-act play, told through the perspectives of an eccentric family plagued by dogma. Each act is narrated by Miasma, the personification of a smell. What appears to be a sitcom episode of sibling rivalry shatters into pandemonium after a sewage disaster erupts in the front lawn. In the flood of excrement, the family descends into a collective hallucination. Madness and despair gifts each member of the household with a lucidity that radically calls into question their world views. The play explores ideas of queer familial structures, polarizing political ideologies, and social contagions. Performed at Highways Performance Space and Human Resources LA (2018/2019)
