Summary
While reciting her poetry at a club in Queens, New York, seventeen-year-old Orphea recounts her childhood in Pennsylvania, leaving after her parents and the girl she loves die, and learning about her family and herself while living with her great-aunts on a Virginia mountaintop. Hot ice. Taboo to the touch. A fire in the cold. That was us. Welcome to a stage, where a soaring painting takes shape before your eyes, a big-booty poet stands at the mike, and there's a seat right in front, just for you. This is a place where wise old ladies live and boys act like horses. This is a vision of love that was crushed and brought back to life. And this is my story. I'm Orphea Proud. Welcome to the show. As Orphea, who discovers her sexuality as a lesbian, shares her story, powerful questions of family, prejudice, and identity are explored
