Genre: Drama, Lesbian+Gay
by Clint Jefferies, directed by Blake Bradford

Trailer Trash is the story of a family from the wrong side of the tracks trying to find their place in America.  Danny is a young man who is looking for love.  Rejected by his family, he seeks solace in the company of strangers.  In spite of a natural charm, his manic energy often manifests itself in anger, as he struggles with the fact that his bisexuality leans strongly toward the gay side, a slight inconvenience to his current pregnant girlfriend Lisa.  When his mother's old friend Andrew returns to their trailer park home in Oklahoma from New York, Danny finds a strange connection with him.  Andrew initially becomes a father figure to Danny, and later finds he is becoming much more.  The two men try to make sense of their love for one another, against opposition from Danny's mother and the impending birth of Danny's son. 

This production includes adult content, drug use, and nudity.

Patrick Crough (Andrew) has been on the stage since his adolescence, but is making his New York City stage debut in Trailer Trash.  Ironically Patrick's Midwest homestate is just to the north of our play's setting, Kansas. He received his Bachelors degree there three years ago and quickly moved to New York just after to complete the Meisner program at William Esper Studio where he studied with Suzanne Esper. Amidst his time in the city he has also studied with Kristen Johnston. "Ask for your chair." Thanks to my NYC family for making this city my home.

Kira McCarthy (Lisa) is very excited to be making her Zephyer Rep debut! She is a member of Brave New World Repertory Theater in Brooklyn, where she was last seen playing Abigail in The Crucible. She was also featured in the pilot episode of "Start-Up" for the Halogen TV network (Plywood Pictures) and has appeared on As the World Turns, as well as many Columbia and NYU MFA short films. She is currently interning with the LAB at Women's Project. Education: NYU Tisch at the Stella Adler Studio.

She wants to thank Blake Bradford for giving her this wonderful opportunity for a ‘second act’ in the theater.
