Snow in July, comets falling from the sky… the world is thrown into chaos as Cupid rips off her wings and gives up on Love. But her old flame Saint Valentine has a plan to bring her spirit back up; and it involves reigniting the flame between two men, Alejandro and Benny. 

 

Moving from the Heavens to Hackensack, I Wanna F*ck like Romeo and Juliet is a love story of epic proportions that investigates gods and mortals, realism and fantasy, and the shame and joy within Queer love of Color.

Winner of the 2019-2020
