Rights of Passage is a new play about a gay Hindu named Wayan. Set on the Indonesian Island of Bali, his journey is delicately interwoven with queer and allied life stories about love, dignity and respect from around the world. Performed through monologues, scenes, digital media, puppetry, mask and dance, this NCTC World Premiere illustrates that sometimes it takes a world of courage to just be who you are.
