Bloom Bloom Pow; A Queer Climate Doom Comedy

Mag faces an underwhelming queer scene and an overwhelming mother. Meanwhile, an ancient being rises from the depths to take their place.

About this event

Mag, a nonbinary twentysomething, returns to their childhood home in a small conservative Ohio town. Everything is dull and weird and not queer at all. They are trying to keep it together despite desperate phone calls from their mom, chatty co-workers, and visions of melting ice caps and dead horses at the bottom of the east river. Mag's life gets more interesting (and sexy) when they meet The Creature and learn about the algae taking over the town's water supply. Will Mag save the city, or is it the algae's time to shine?

Bloom Bloom Pow is inspired by 1950s monster movies and the real-life 2014 crisis in Toledo, Ohio, when the tap water became deadly for humans because of toxic algal blooms
