Gender non-binary theatre has a long and diverse history, yet modern stages scarcely spotlight its stories. Beyond the Binary: Eight Non-Binary Plays changes this by presenting short plays from non-binary playwrights that intersect with race, class, religion, politics, and pop culture. Audiences can meet Joan of Arc, hear toys talk, visit New York City, feel the heartbeat of a family, and more – all through the lens of non-binary playwrights. These pieces can be assembled into an evening of theatre that centers non-binary experiences, or they can be broken up and integrated into larger events. They are also ideal for classroom use and individual inspiration. The plays contained here are a love letter to non-binary joy, and they can’t wait to celebrate with you.

In an undisclosed location deep in the woods, a blindfolded stranger with the codename V arrives to join a group of befuddled yet earnest patriots to count ballots from a recent election. 

Over the course of several days, a sense of claustrophobia and paranoia takes over as manager T oversees worker bees R and S, just as V begins asking too many questions. All the while, a guy named Chuck stands menacingly on guard in the corner as an ominous contraption known as “The Bloodhound” sits in the middle of the room, hungrily waiting to be fed. 

Little by little, identities are uncovered, loyalties are tested, and lunch is eventually procured. But will it be too late to make a difference in the election?
