“A very funny play” – The Front Row Center
“A wickedly witty swipe at sexual identity and gender politics” – South Florida Sun Sentinel
“Monahan displays a deft touch as a writer” – Charged.fm


Love, sex, and politics – fabulous drag performer Jack and his significantly less fabulous son Norman don’t agree on any of it. When Norman’s outlandish family and shattered ex-soulmate meet his new partner, all are forced to grapple with their differences amid the evolving spectrum of sexuality. Bitingly funny and deeply insightful, Aunt Jack is an exploration of family and finding yourself against all odds.

By Nora Brigid Monahan (pronouns: they/them)
Directed by Jeffrey Hoffman (pronouns: he/him)
Cast: Joey Alvarado, Ryan Marchand, Jennifer McGeorge, Jim Rupp, Emily Steelhammer, Nick Trengove
