In BALLAST we find Zoe and Grace navigating their relationship in the wake of Grace's gender transition. While Zoe dreams of escape, Grace simply yearns for a return to normality and work as a Pastor. Their lives intersect with two strangers: young Xavier begins to confront inner demons as he initiates his own gender transition, and his best friend Savannah, who discovers personal freedom through their unique relationship. With much of the story taking place in the characters’ dreams, this cutting-edge play skydives into the unconscious to explore personal identity and how gender shapes our spirituality, desires and destiny.
