The Feature Presentation of 2024's OUTwright Theatre Festival

2024'S OUTwright Theatre Festival feature production, Blonde on a Bum Trip, comes from the brilliant mind of playwright Mikki Gillette. A vibrant backstage comedy, the play delves into the lives of pioneering trans actresses Candy Darling, Holly Woodlawn, and Jackie Curtis claw their way from off-off-Broadway theatre to the underground film stardom of Andy Warhol's Factory scene. Through a blend of ambition, pettiness, and envy, Blonde on a Bum Trip explores the complexities of friendship and fame as the limelight threatens to undo the trio's deep bonds.


Mikki Gillette, an ensemble and board member of Fuse, is a renowned playwright whose works have consistently captivated audiences. Her recent play, American Girl, clinched the 2023 BroadwayWorld Award for Best Play (Portland). Gillette's voice is a significant force in contemporary theater, offering authentic and powerful narratives centered on the trans experience. Her accolades include being named to American Theatre’s Roll Call of emerging talent and Willamette Week's 25 Most Influential Artists, underscoring her impact and influence in the arts.
