White Muscle Daddy
March 20–31, 2024

“artfully (depicting) the tension, anguish and excitement that comes with grappling with who and how to love.”

— NOW Magazine (on Raf Antonio's 'Rope Running Out')

a Pencil Kit Productions + Buddies in Bad Times Theatre production with the support of Charles Street Video

Soon after Jeremy Río clocks in for his first graveyard shift at an exclusive LA gym, he meets Eugene, a fitness influencer who seems to have the life of Jeremy’s dreams—one that’s double stuffed with money, muscles, and parties galore. What begins as an envious crush quickly morphs into an insatiable hunger that threatens to tear Jeremy’s life apart.

A cinematic theatre piece, WHITE MUSCLE DADDY uses projection art, live camera feed and shadow play to spin a chilling yarn about the politics of queer desire.
