IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE BEARDED LADIES CABARET
A TRUE STORY OF GENDER FEASTING, SET TO MUSIC

Once upon a vine, John Jarboe’s aunt revealed that John not only had a twin sister in the womb, but that John consumed her: “You ate her. That’s why you are the way you are.” This was a lot for John to swallow! In this musical shrine to the consumed twin, named Rose, John welcomes you into a feast of gender through song, storytelling, and a full plate of wordplay.
