ABOUT THE PLAY

What We Look Like came about after several honest conversations all on the same topic: why do all love stories always LOOK the same? Doesn't love take as many shapes as we do as humans? If so, who is going to tell another kind of love story? This became our mission.

We wanted a story that tested the boundaries of conventional love stories: a story that spoke in real language about what it's really like to date outside societal expectations. Using real life dialogue seen and heard around New York City, we created characters who could give a voice (from every angle) to this issue. The big question we want to ask with our play is: does embracing your true and honest chance at love come second to giving in to societal pressure?

While our story is played out in a same sex relationship, there is a real universality to the themes of body image and fat shaming in the modern dating world. We challenge you to honestly ask yourself: How important do you think body type is when it comes to falling in love?


SYNOPSIS

What We Look Like is the story of Jesse and Adam, two people who fall in love. But it's not only about Jesse and Adam. It's also the story of Jesse: of how a person deemed "fat" by their community lives, works, and is seen by the world he lives in. Because Jesse and Adam's relationship isn't just about them. It's about how the pressures from the people in your lives, and your community, can affect a relationship. When Adam's circle of people begins to question Jesse's worth to Adam, it makes that same doubt suddenly start to grow in Adam's mind. 

Ultimately the question becomes: how much of falling in love is shaped by what we look like?

Support


Support


In today's world it's become incredibly difficult to produce new work and have a platform for such work. While most of our support has come from our own pockets thus far, our mission is to develop What We Look Like and put it on stage for audiences to witness. We feel the message is universal and we spend hours every day working steadily to realize this dream. What's more, we cannot continue to develop the play without you. 

Support isn't always financial. While monetary support is appreciated we encourage all forms of support. Come to one of our readings. Like us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Send us love letters if you feel so inclined- we might even send one back! The point is giving isn't only limited to dollars of donations and we truly, 100% encourage any and all who feel the play speaks to you to support us on our journey. 


Although we are in the beginning stages of our development with What We Look Like we are seeing great progress and immense support from friends, theatre lovers and industry professionals. While we continue to work on the project we've encountered individuals who simply want to donate or support us on our journey. If you'd like to support us please contact us.
