More Episodes

Thanks for Hitting Play and then listening to Hit Play. The New York Neo-Futurists have been celebrating Pride all week, and we’re capping it off with episodes of Hit Play featuring some queer queer plays. You can head to nynf.org/prideweek to check out the rest of our art we made. This week: lineage, dreams, texting, and introductions!

 

We ask that if you find this work meaningful, you donate to a cause that is meaningful to us. Check out Black and Pink, a prison abolitionist organization that  supports LGBTQ and HIV-positive prisoners. 

 

Some of the plays in this episode may contain sensitive topics. For more specific content warnings, check out the timecodes below.

 

If you like what you hear and want to support the New York Neo-Futurists, subscribe to the show, consider making a donation at nynf.org, and join our Patreon.

Contributing to our Patreon helps us continue to pay our artists.
