When you've got two moms in a small town sometimes it's hard to believe "It Gets Better". For this "queerspawn" Kid, freshman year looks like it's only going to get worse. A comic drama for adults about imaginary friends and surviving high school.
Playwright Mallery Avidon’s original research was supported by Colage, the only national organization for people raised in LGBTQ families, where she had the opportunity to interview teens and young adult children about their experiences at home and in the world.
