NEWS: Otherkin make it to the big time. Haters left in the dust.

So, this is interesting. Otherkin seem to have become more than just a sideshow: I don't know what this is, but it's about Otherkin.

It looks like some kind of play, or some kind of poem-reading... I don't know what to make of it. But here's the synopsis in case you didn't want to click the link:

KIN FOLK
Written by William Glick

After being recently orphaned, Lucy must reimagine her life. She decides to come out of the closet and reveal her true identity to her family: a dragon named Kreeka. After the announcement, Lucy is more alone than she's ever been, and she must ultimately choose between her family and a new community known as Otherkin. On her journey, she meets a young man claiming to be an elf, a giant gnome named Blubberwort, and a werewolf from Montana who shows her what it means to lead a life driven by a belief in the fantastic.

It looks pretty cool. I'm going, by the way. I'll probably wear my tail.

I don't really know what to expect... But please, give your thoughts on what you think this is all about. Are they going to make fun of Otherkin? Or is this the beginning of a broad understanding of what Otherkin represent?

Also, how relevant do you think this is to the furry fandom/commuity?

Your thoughts, please! And stay on-topic! No Trolling!

I will update the tread after the event and give my synopsis!

I find it doubtful that they'll make fun of otherkin. I don't know what to think and honestly I'm kind of surprised by this and find it genuinely interesting.

As far as relevancy to the furry fandom goes, furries and otherkin share some common interests and there are many who are members of both communities. I wouldn't say that this is directly relevant to furries, but I'm sure its of interest to some.

I read that quote from your post and I thought it was some B movie pornography plot summary.

It didn't have enough Morgan Freeman and 100% control over her brain for me.

Oh lord.

I could see this being whimsical and charming, or pretentious, humorless, whiny, and terrible. Not knowing anything else, I'm leaning towards this being the latter.

Side Stage programming

lol


The director of this thing was co-playwright for "5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche". I shit you not. It'll probably be attended by a bunch of furries, some friends of the people in it, and art students who think it's a totally awesome depiction of man's struggle with his own humanity.

OP is a bad troll and posted an advert on a play that's trolling Otherkin.
1/10. Go back to gaiaonline.

If they're actually serving quiche, I'll definitely go.

Me too. (I'd go just to see it regardless XD)
 
Just got back from the staged reading.

It was actually a really good story. Very memorable characters.

There was a discussion after the reading, and Blubberwort was discussed a lot. He was a very polarizing figure. People in the audience either loved him or hated him, it was great!

The humor was good, the characters were good, and it made you think. Would see again.

I'm considering doing a TL;DR about the story. It was a really interesting story. It combined religion, sexuality and identity. There were some good moments that showed conflicts among people of differing backgrounds.
