Hold onto your wigs, grab your glitter and get ready to dance!

Award-winning playwright and performer Taylor Mac’s The Lily’s Revenge is a stunning, five-part, epic journey. It turns traditional story-telling on its sparkly ear and invites us to step into a fantastical world as we follow a torch-singing lily flower determined to wed a human bride against the wishes of the God of Nostalgia. As The Lily embarks on a quest of self-discovery, audiences become part of the spectacle encompassing film, live music, and dance that celebrates radical acts of compassion and love.
