It’s always fascinating to be a small piece of an enormous work, such as This is Reading. For months, you hear bits and bobs about the grand scheme but focus only on your tiny piece. This past weekend, we saw it all come together at Franklin Street Station.
The second episode in our “F*cking & Dying” series concerns “the white light,” a surreal concept of the soul tied exclusively to sex and death. Here, Parker Drown portrays Trevor, a real-life NYC rent boy, and Jeanine Serralles plays Kelli Dunham, a genderqueer comic who used to be a nun. The episode closes with Grace McLean singing her original song “Where is the White Light,” based on an interview with an energy healer.
