Written and Directed by Christian St. Croix.
In a dystopian future where North America is under the rule of a brutal military dictatorship, people found to be homosexual are sent to torturous concentration camps called Strands. There’s said to be freedom and sanctuary in a secret city known as Frisco, but the country widely believes it a fairy tale. Guard soldier, Joah, is captured by a rebel militia team, all claiming to be from the mythical city: leader, Rook, her teenaged sister, Poe, the tortured Sweet, and Sweet’s mute husband, Hush. As they take a short rest in the scorching heat, the team’s bond is tested, secrets are revealed and one of them makes an incredible sacrifice.
Frisco made its World Premiere at the Diversionary Theatre as part of the 2016 San Diego International Fringe Festival.
