Polylogues is a funny, interview-based solo show that explores real people’s experiences with nonmonogamy – and love in all its forms. Writer/performer Xandra Clark is less like an actor and more like a medium, listening on headphones to the interviews as she performs them. Though a solo show, Polylogues forges a living polyamorous community on the stage with a diverse set of voices—from a senior citizen who’s been poly for decades to a child worried about her open parents; from liberals in a commune to conservative evangelical swingers; and from the newly empowered to folks critical of how nonmonogamy perpetuates patriarchy and white supremacy. Polylogues examines what 21st century folks want in relationships, what we’re afraid of, and the ways in which tradition attempts to contain us.
