On a journey where we all are given the chance to wrestle with the question ‘What makes me hard to love?’, a young, black, queer, HIV positive boy is lost on his way to a date. A date with who? His father? The cute guy at Popeyes? A white supremacist? God? Neptune can be described as a sexy bedtime story, a rumor, or that poignant thing your grandma once said. A poetic contemporary spin on the fairytale tradition, this remarkable performance exposes the violence, grace, humanity, prejudice, wit and other shards of our lived complexities.
