Described as "part anthem, part campfire story, and part instructions for the dismantling of the gender stories we tell", Tomboy Survival Guide is a show for misfits and boy-girls and butches and lady mechanics.
Writer Ivan Coyote has been creating literature for two decades and 11 books now. Joined by bassist Pebbles Willekes, drummer Sally Zori, and trumpeter Alison Gorman, these are four artists are not seeking storytelling in spite of music. Part hymn, part howl and part homage to the bent but the beautiful, the scarred but still sacred. Blending story, stomp, swagger and song to call all the tomboys to the round table to plot the downfall of the gender binary.
“[Tomboy Survival Guide is]…about family. An emotionally powerful memoir by a great storyteller about normal life.”

What are Relaxed Performances?
Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.
These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
