RONALD REAGAN MURDERED MY MENTORS

By: C. Julien Jimenez

Lost, a 40-something Queer Latin man, struggles to navigate life in America after the AIDS epidemic obliterated an entire generation of Queer male role models. Lost seeks solace in an anonymous voice on the other end of a telephone. As the play bounces between 3 decades, he is tormented by dead Queer icons and their murderer, Ronald Reagan, in a seedy gay bar of the afterlife.

true story of Nikki Kuhnhausen, a trans teen killed in a hate crime in Vancouver, WA in 2019. Based on extensive interviews with

Nikki’s family and friends, it tells an all-too modern American story of addiction, homelessness, domestic abuse, sex work and murder in the tradition of “Boys Don’t Cry” and “The Laramie Project.”
