By Daniel Talbott

October 12-November 17, 2018

Directed by Andrew Klaus Vineyard

Eli is 17, out, and a budding photographer in San Francisco.  After his father’s death, Eli and his mother move to Iowa to begin a new life.  A flirtation with a popular high school jock holds potential for real love, but Eli is haunted by a previous relationship and by the legacy of his parents’ marriage and his father’s death.  Slipping is a love story for the modern age, a powerful evening of theater that reminds us that coming out is only the first step in the journey to finding your true self.  

*This show contains full frontal nudity, violence, and scene depicting self harm.
