For over a decade, Queer Soup Theater has created a broad array of projects that prove to be highly entertaining and thought provoking.

We All Will Be Received (2010) at the The Boston Center for The Arts

A documentary about two drag kings driving to Graceland takes a personal turn when the filmmaker and her subjects hit their own gender roadblocks. This world premiere multi-media production travels the line between theater and film, with stops to Elvis’ Graceland and Dolly Parton’s Dollywood.

“On the outside this play appears to be about drag, Elvis, and road trips, all fine things for sure. But on the inside its about creating, articulating, and finding the support to be who you are, even when the world pushes against that.” – Gunner Scott, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition.
