Event Details

“PONY” by Sylvan Oswald

Presented by Portland Theater Festival, and co-presented by Mechanics’ Hall

When Pony, a formerly incarcerated trans guy, moves to a small rural town to start a new life, he quickly becomes entangled with its isolated community. He starts to fall for a waitress named Marie who is obsessed with a recent local murder; His butch social worker doesn’t get him; and a young trans guy from the city is inexplicably following him around. Pony is a seminal work of trans theater exploring questions of generational difference, class and gender on an epic scale. Director Jess Barbagallo’s production crackles with pop, noir, and 90s influences.
