With You: A Queer Sports Rom-Com

Description
WITH YOU! is a queer sports rom-com about a college rugby team's love for the game and each other, brought to the stage via one woman's body. The newest quasi-autobiographical show from award-winning performer/playwright Una Aya Osato (Wes Alum, '04). Una’s previous work (Recess) has been called “a tour-de-force” by The Montreal Gazzette and received five (out of 5) stars from Toronto’s Eyeweekly. Una and her sister/collaborator Michi Ilona Osato were recently featured in a Huffington Post profile piece: www.tinyurl.com/unaayaosatohuffpost.
