"These earrings were inspired by the 'Dormilona De Agua' sensitive plant native to our desert landscape. The plants leaves close at nighttime or when lightly touched. My nana used to have this plant in her yard and I remember being in awe when the evening came because the leaves would close."

“Frailty, thy name is the gender binary”
In Please Come Off-Book, Kevin Kantor crafts a raw and vulnerable confluence between two of their passions: acting and poetry, using their experiences as a trans non-binary theatre maker as an extended lens of exploration into gender identity, family dynamics, and growing up queer.
Kantor critiques the treatment of queer figures with an adroit blend of humor and earnest longing, imagining a braver and bolder future, one in which Hamlet is trans (obviously) and queer characters get to survive their own stories.
Please Come Off-Book is both a heartfelt love letter and a scathing critique of the American theatre and the lenses we choose to see ourselves through.
Kevin Kantor (they/them) is a trans non-binary poet and theatre maker working to deconstruct and reimagine the semiotics of gender onstage and in performance. $20 *pre-order for 3/23/21*
