Lala makes fine art on the back of pizza boxes. 

A sweet and sticky summer inspires her to romance Dani, a budding femenist⏤and Albert, his smooth-talking twin. 

What’s good? 

Love or lust? 

Either way, she’ll find her muse.

Playwright and poet Lenelle Moïse returns to her hometown with "K-I-S-S-I-N-G" - a heart-opening story for fans of David Bowie, bell hooks, and fireworks by the Charles. 

The Front Porch Arts Collective hooks up with the Huntington for this highly anticipated co-production, directed by Dawn M. Simmons.
