Like The Wind
Like the Wind is a new electronica-pop musical that explores the lives of Bennie and Cai, two queer teenagers running away from a conversion therapy facility in the summer of 2018. Loosely inspired by Bonnie and Clyde, Bennie and Cai choose to change the fate that society has set for them and break through the constraints of expectations and rules. With a queer, female writing team at the helm, Like the Wind explores themes of identity, forgiveness, and queerness in young people.

After a long night of partying (that he doesn’t remember any of), Average Joe embarks on a long subway ride with only twenty-six percent battery left on his phone. Will he make it home in time or will his phone (and all of the voices in his phone) abandon him? Featuring many virtual helpers, a dying phone battery, and the plight of one Average Joe, Twenty-Six Percent documents a subway ride home in real time.
