Penned by NYU grads Henco Espag, Andi Lee Carter, and Briana Harris, Pompeii Rising concerns a Trans masc programmer who dabbles in time travel, searching for a legendary Trans femme politician whose history was lost in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Along the way, he grapples with a goddess named Caca and her toxically masc father, Vulcan, who wants to blow up everything. The authors also direct and musically direct the evening.
The concert is being held on the anniversary of the historic eruption of Mount Vesuvius and will feature Pompeii-themed treats and prizes for those in attendance. Visit TNNY.org/Pompeii.
