$tripped is currently in development and will be continuing. A WIP of this show was debuted to a sell out audience and standing ovation in March 2022. It’s Friday night and April is eating pizza in the dressing room, Bella is sitting in the corner writing poems in her head, and Maia is twerking on stage, smiling at a client she can barely see because she’s forgotten her contacts, again. Welcome to our world of chosen family, and trying to make ends meet in a post pandemic recession.
