Jess Barbagallo: Weekend at Barry’s / Lesbian Lighthouse
Barry is a 40-something cultural worker whose career-averse lifestyle has led him to a personal and professional dead end. Supported only by his cheap apartment and team of misfit friends, Barry is perpetually between questionable jobs and even more questionable lovers.
When Helen Hufflekugel, a seductively “contemporary” arts curator, offers him a gig mentoring a couple of wide-eyed queer youths in exchange for a slot in her next season, Barry reluctantly agrees. Little does he know that this last-ditch attempt to manifest old dreams will open a portal to another life he didn’t know he was already living elsewhere.
The creative team includes CHRIS GIARMO (co-director/sound design); PARKER LUTZ (sets); ZACK TINKELMAN (lights); ENVER CHAKARTASH (costumes); and NICK AUER (AD/SM); with cast members – JESS BARBAGALLO; CECILIA GENTILI; LÉOH HAILU-GHERMAY; TANYA MARQUARDT; DOVE MURRAY; EAN SHEEHY; and ANNA WILSON.
