OutCast Productions has partnered with Blue Collaborative, a NY based theater and film production team, to bring Stacey Gregg’s play, SCORCH, to Whidbey Island this June.
Stacey Gregg's play for a solo performer follows a teenager named Kes who, though female at birth, has a developing identification with male characters in video games and movies. When Kes meets Jules online, and the latter believes that Kes is a boy, the two start a relationship. As Jules discovers the truth about Kes, it unleashes a whirlwind of confusion for Kes, and indeed everyone else.
