Digital Stage (long-form, free)

Two queer Sri Lankans, of different nationalities and from different warring ethnic groups, haphazardly meet at a gay bar in Lancaster, California. Craving comfort, they form a tense though loving friendship, but sometimes new bonds aren't strong enough to hold against the world.

Contains themes of suicide.

About the Artists

D'Lo Srijaerajah is an actor/writer/comic and also happens to be queer/trans and also Tamil/Sri Lankan/American. He's never used the forward slash this often.

His performance work, whether in theater, stand up, storytelling or short-form content, is created to make folks laugh and think in no particular order, and as an offering to his QTBIPOC community. His 3 solo plays have toured both nationally and internationally, and he is currently working on his latest play Queer Noise. https://www.dlocokid.com/.
