And in Sweet Heart City, in the neighborhood called Snake Belly that is the part of town that never stays in the same part of town, lives a monster. A monster they all call the Off White Beast. And the Off White Beast is horrible in the word’s most absolute way. He is the kind of monster that contains only pain and has felt it for a very, very, very long time and the only way he knows how to deal with it is to share it. He will never again enjoy a hot meal. He will never again have good sex or even any sex at all. He will never again know friendship and he has been away from it for so long that he doesn’t remember the way it feels. But before being gifted and cursed with immortality, before being invited in through bedroom windows night after night by slow red faced Unfortunates, before God partitioned their voice for him, before he even tricked God in the first place he was human. He was an Unfortunate.
Come to New Boon(e) Collective and Gallery for a story telling performance by Joshua Francis Beaver(JoshuaFrancisBeaver.com) to learn how the Off White Beast became what he is. There will be music, dance, storytelling, and food by Chef Pat Higgins. And also a solo acoustic performance by Stephen Ignatius Fitzpatrick.
