Hi, Are You Single?
July 17 - August 2
- By Ryan J. Haddad
- Directed by Danny Sharron and Laura Savia
Ryan has a higher sex drive than you. He also has cerebral palsy. You can often find him on Grindr or at your local inaccessible gay bar. Join writer/performer Ryan J. Haddad on his search to find love. Or a date. Or at least a hookup. From encounters with drag queens to platonic lap dances, Ryan will guide you through the gay dating scene with his provocative take on intimacy, rejection, and judgment. His one request? Please bring an attractive male friend with you.
"I have wanted to introduce Ryan Haddad to the DMV since I got to Woolly. He is a captivating storyteller who charms anyone he meets within seconds. HI, ARE YOU SINGLE? fits perfectly into #NSFW as a complement to GET ON YOUR KNEES because it asks us to examine sexuality through the lens of a queer man with a disability. That in itself is a radical shift in perspective and one that I am thrilled to champion. Oh, and if you’d like to take him on a date, I’d be happy to set you up!"
- Maria Manuela Goyanes, Artistic Director
"Haddad wants to see different characters with different stories—and with different elements of disability."
The Daily Beast
"It is a stirring work of theater, replete with both heartrending and deliberately hilarious moments. It is a show that should and needs to be seen."
