Theatre Rhinoceros presents BILLY A world premiere written & directed by John Fisher
Performances: Feb. 8 - 25, 2024 Thurs, Fri, Sat at 8 PM Sun at 3 PM
After a lifetime of fighting America’s wars, The Colonel is recalled to service to handle the greatest Russian spy of all time, Ivan. But the assignment is too much for him – so he is assigned the aid of Billy, a non-binary master spy of a whole new generation. Ivan threatens to tip the balance in the War in Ukraine and win it for Russia, unless the Colonel and Billy can stop him. Ironically, all three characters are queer, and while they are separated by nationality, they are linked by proclivity. How can they reconcile the personal and political in a world torn apart by politics?
In the spirit of John Fisher's ACTION HERO (recipient of six Theatre Bay Area Award nominations including Best Play, Best Leading Actor, and Best Script, and one win for Best Direction), BILLY is full of action, hand to hand combat, and onstage showdowns of geopolitics and gender.
