BITE ME follows Nathan, a white guy with family money,
who is ditching class when he stumbles on Melody, the only Black female
in the high school, crying in a storage closet. They form an unexpected
bond, and it’s not long
before the heat between them boils over.
The creative team also includes scenic designer Chika Shimizu, costume designer Sarita Fellows, lighting designer Lucrecia Briceno, and sound designer Tosin Olufolabi. The stage manager is Caren Celine Morris. Casting is by Kelly Gillespie.
