Episodes 1-3: Thoroughly Stupid Things by Montserrat Mendez


I am very happy to announce that the first play we'll be featuring on Play x Play is Montserrat "Mozz" Mendez's hilarious play, Thoroughly Stupid Things, a delightful unauthorized sequel to Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest.

Because this is our first play, for this month only, we're making all three episodes available at once. So you can binge-listen to your hearts content.

Also, we have a deeply touching and personal interview with Mozz as he dives into the origins of the play, his roots, and how his identity as a gay latino man influences his work. It's really special and only available to our Patreon backers.
