You Are Here follows three central story lines about home and finding and creating your own family: a troupe of drag queens and celebrity impersonators touring across middle America; an American woman fighting to stay in London permanently; and a
young married couple on a less than ideal honeymoon in Japan. Woven into the fabric of these stories are reflections of the nature of travel, self-exploration and transformation.
Created collaboratively during workshops over the summer, You Are Here explores themes of rootlessness and alienation and features a rich ensemble of memorable characters.
