JUST BE

just be

A new play workshop performance
Written and directed by Maybe Stewart

What does it mean to truly find yourself? What would it look like to let yourself just be? These are the central questions that Maybe Stewart and their ensemble of actors will seek to answer with you through an evening of poetry, movement, theatre, and conversation. In this brave space, you are invited to courageously sit with your discomfort, and dig deeper into what being human means to you. Using the playwright’s personal narrative as a jumping-off point, this interactive piece discusses gender, trauma, and identity in a unique, vulnerable, and piercingly honest format. 

The Bridge Initiative began working with Stewart on just be in 2019, presented a reading of the first draft in spring 2020, and will present these workshop performances in January 2022 at Tempe Center for the Arts.

Content warning: Mature themes, including trans/BIPOC trauma, child abuse, and sexual assault.
