Originally performed at The Lafayette Street Theatre as part of the 11th Annual NY International Fringe Festival, FringeNYC, August 2007

A monk confronts the reincarnated soul of his dead lover, a boy, in this unsettling gay ghost story inspired by classic Kabuki. To Be Loved was developed in part through the New Moon Reading Series at Luna Stage in Montclair, NJ. In November-December 2006, residency support was provided by chashama for a workshop production.
