About This Show
and after, we dreamt of purple is a play that takes place behind closed doors. We watch Charlie, Jesse, and Halle, as they navigate mental illness, queerness, and their relationships to each other and themselves. This play explores the way we scream when emotions feel too big and laugh when our corners seem too scary. This is a play with trans people. This is not a play about being trans.
