Welcome

Welcome!

The Unknown Play Project involves a cross-country journey to explore shifting identities and politics among lesbians and queer women through the lens of a handful of lesbian & queer spaces. This project combines community-based play readings and documentary filmmaking, with plans to create a web-based and physical art installation building on the research for the project.

Sarah’s Photos from the Road

Currently we’re busy transcribing the interviews and logging all the footage we collected on the road, in addition to gathering some additional interviews. But in the meantime, you can view some of the film photography that our production assistant Sarah Nakano shot while we were on the road. View the full gallery on her website.
