A program filled with unexpected ideas, choices, feelings, actions, friendships and fears… For a taste of unusual characters and offbeat storytelling!

Lou, a queer Latina whose suppressed sexuality manifests as a magical being who’s sometimes a person and sometimes a cat, comes out to her boyfriend Sam mid-orgasm. Once that CAT is out of the bag, there’s nothing she can do to get it back in, and after a bewildering, wild fight, Sam leaves, taking the cat with him as a sort of hostage. After a few months apart, they meet at their favorite spot at Brighton Beach to play through an old ritual in exchange for the cat, and take a second crack at telling (and hearing) the truth. Meanwhile, CAT is having some relationship problems of their own…
