THE BIG F***IN’ GIANT by Rachel Bykowski; Directed by Jared Mohr-Leiva
A play that analyzes white male privilege in the form of three college fraternity brothers. Ranked third in the nation for collegiate wrestling and the leading athlete in the Alpha Psi fraternity, Darren is a big f***in’ giant. Darren announces to his teammates, Chris and Bill, he is leaving wrestling. However, a promise he made to Chris, the runt of the team, keeps Darren on the mat for one more night: Darren must help Chris become an official “Alpha” by using a Judy blow-up doll. As Darren starts to embrace the ritual, it becomes increasingly difficult for him to leave the mat.

Relative Theatrics strives to present thought-provoking theatre that examines the joining qualities of the human race. We believe that theatre is a forum with the power to illuminate the binding qualities of humanity and reinforce the ideals that as a society we have values that pose as common ground and emotions that relate us to one another. Taking artistic risk, we provide a community gathering place where thoughts can be exchanged about society, culture, and the power of creativity.
