Written & Performed by Ryan J. Haddad
Directed by Laura Savia
Presented in partnership with Dixon Place
Ryan has a higher sex drive than you. He also has cerebral palsy. Following a sold-out performance on closing night of this year’s HOT! Festival, his autobiographical solo show Hi, Are You Single? returns to Dixon Place. Though society assumes people with disabilities lack sexual and romantic desires, Ryan shatters this misconception while navigating humor and hurt on his search for love. He enters the gay club ready for glamour and excitement but soon realizes his cerebral palsy makes him an outsider. The men he meets force him to confront his insecurities and examine his own judgmental behavior. But not everything is so serious! Grab a margarita and say hi to Ryan on Grindr. Give him a kiss if you’d like. There’s no need to be shy.
