Two Augusts In A Row In A Row’ is a love letter between generations of queer people. Set in New York City in 2001, we follow Phillip—a gender subversive drag king in search of grace and magic—through rich, sad, humorous language that is singularly Shelley Marlow’s. Marlow will read from ‘Two Augusts In A Row In A Row’ and an excerpt from a new work in progress.
