Safe Word is a quirky, queer psychological drama about the paralyzing tension between self-loathing and love. It explores themes of internalized shame, guilt, body image, and power. Safe Word playfully investigates the impact mental health has on our relationships and it asks the audience to reflect on what we risk or gain when we reveal our most authentic self.
Cesar, a charming, self-loathing man with a penchant for tutus desperately craves company, he pays a tall, muscular, and dominant man named “Bear” to come to his apartment and roleplay. Their intimate game drastically changes when, one night, Cesar is forced to reveal his most vulnerable truths.
