SWIMMING WHILE DROWNING
by Emilio Rodriguez
When teenager Angelo Mendez decides to leave his home out of fear of further disappointing his homophobic father, he encounters a world he was not prepared for. He meets a fellow homeless teen at an LGBT homeless shelter in Los Angeles who gives him a voice and unexpectedly introduces him to love. Spoken word poetry and teen romance collide in this coming of age story as two homeless teens find inspiration to live life on their own terms. A dark romantic comedy that is simultaneously gritty, sweet, funny, heartbreaking and real.
Monday, April 10th, in the CL Space, 1911 N. 13th Street, Tampa. 7: 30pm Curtain. Tickets are $10. Cash bar on site. And stick around for the discussion afterwards.
