THE INVISIBLE HAND OF GOD TOUCHED ME IN A BAD PLACE
a new play
When mid-level manager Jaime Ramirez gets the promotion of a lifetime, he’s sure moving his family to central Mexico will change their lives for the better. But his plans are turned on their head when he falls for his employee, a queer femme presenting non-binary AMAB person set on changing working conditions and extinguishing American capitalist ideals. Should he fire them and squash their labor rebellion, risking a sexual harassment suit in the process, or should he join the fight against his greedy employers and sacrifice the fortunes they’ve promised him? It's Boal meets Nottage in this interactive-hybrid-dramedy that casts the audience as the striking factory workers tasked with leveraging these characters' rights for a little piece of power. Choose your own adventure in this post-experimental satire packed with sexual tension you won't soon forget!
