About The Fre

Taylor Mac returns to The Flea for the world premiere of "The Fre." Frequent Taylor Mac collaborator, Niegel Smith ("Hir," "24 Decade History of Popular Music" and "Taylor Mac’s Holiday Sauce") directs.

In the land of two bridges The Fre, a rambunctious group of fun-loving anti-intellectuals spend their days cavorting in the mud. Into their midst descends Hero, a dandy aesthete, who longs to cut the bridge and finally escape the mud pit. But first he must convince the leader Frankie Fre and the other fatuous inhabitants that there is a better life outside of the swamp. In this queer love story, audiences will literally and figuratively jump into the mud with the Fre to hash out the current cultural divide. The play is set in a giant ball pit with audience seating inside and out.
