Multiracial Orphea Proud performs poetry and explains her life story to the audience, including her complicated family and the death of her best friend and crush Lissa.
Taboo to the touch
A fire in the cold
That was us
Welcome to a stage, where a soaring painting takes shape before your eyes, a big-booty poet stands at the mike, and there’s a seat right in front, just for you.
This is a place where wise old ladies live and boys act like horses.
This is a vision of love that was crushed and brought back to life.
And this is my story. I’m Orphea Proud. Welcome to the show.
As Orphea, who discovers her sexuality as a lesbian, shares her story, powerful questions of family, prejudice, and identity are explored.
