Show Announcement August 26, 2022

FERNDALE, MI, August 12, 2022 – The Ringwald Theatre is thrilled to present the Michigan premiere of the provocative and timely Plot Points in Our Sexual Development written by Miranda Rose Hall.

Theo and Cecily want to be honest about their sexual histories, but what happens when telling the truth jeopardizes everything? A contemporary queer love story, Plot Points in Our Sexual Development explores gender, intimacy, and the dangers of revealing yourself to the person you love.

New York Stage Review said, “This is a smart, well-made play that is very much of its time, a look at the brave new world of gender nonconformity, and a reminder that, really, we’re all the same.”

“The Ringwald is beginning our 16th season, and our second in our new home at Affirmations, with Miranda Rose Hall’s beautiful play. Plot Points in Our Sexual Development is the perfect play for us to kick off our 2022/2023 season,” said Artistic Director Joe Bailey.

Content Advisory: Plot Points in Our Sexual Development contains descriptions of sexual violence.

Plot Points in Our Sexual Development is directed by Asia Hicks and features Marie Muhammad and Tiaja Sabrie. Stage Management is by Julianna Gonzalez with set design by Miranda Fyfe, lighting design by Brandy Joe Plambeck, costume design by Vince Kelley, and sound design by Asia Hicks.
