A Senior Theater Capstone Project by Will Blumberg '22.

While taking care of a sick friend in their Brooklyn apartment, Mim starts experiencing what can only be described as divine back pain…

Stuck in the past—somewhere between the beginning and the end—Mim untangles their childhood, desperate to understand how a family history of anxiety and grief has brought them to the present. As the pain continues, Mim faces a reckoning about their identity and the tense relationship with their family.

At its core, this story explores how individuals balance personal identities against the continuation of familial and religious traditions. Together we ask: How can we be One in a line of Many?

See the Nothing Comes to Mim map and directions document for more information.

Content Warning: This play contains themes and representations of gender dysphoria, homophobia, transphobia.

*Saturday evening’s performance is scheduled as a double feature with the world premiere of the play The Book of Chrysanthemum directed by Laia Comas '22. The performance of The Book of Chrysanthemum will take place in the Develin Room, located in the Wesleyan University Library at 252 Church Street in Middletown, and begin immediately following Saturday’s performance. Tickets for this event can be reserved on eventbrite.
