Self Made

a queer new play

by Kara Hadden

This new play by emerging playwright Kara Hadden follows the relationship between two women, Eleanor and Ren, over their senior year at a small liberal arts college in Western Massachusetts. When Ren wins a prestigious $50,000 fellowship to create performance art in New York City after graduation, Eleanor begins to fret over her own post-grad decisions, the future of their relationship, and the type of person she wants to become.

Self Made is a meditation on identity, respectability politics, the necessity of (queer) self-invention, and what it means to be in college at the end of the 2010s. This timely piece explores our “post-gay” cultural moment by investigating the liminal space between genres, generations, and queer theory/practice.

We will be participating in the November casting cycle. Please contact jack.mcauliffe@yale.edu with any questions.
