LESBIAN LIP SYNCS ON BROADWAY! MAE WEST MEETS METATHEATRICAL DRAG SHOW, PUTS QUEER LEGACY ON TRIAL!
Bombshell broad Mae West and rising Broadway starlet Helen Menken are arrested in 1926 for artistic obscenity and summoned to a metatheatrical courtroom. Their charges: serving face, serving legacy, and serving queer community. An intoxicating mix of drag show, courtroom drama, and theater, A JURY OF OUR QUEERS playfully blends historic texts and original writing in an act of radical queer re-envisioning.
