Inspired by both a film and novel, the new world premiere of “Fixed” is set in the heart of L.A.’s own Historic Filipinotown. The play explores the once underground “ball culture” where houses served as alternative families for outcasted black and Latino queer youth who would “walk” in elaborate drag competitions for trophies and recognition within the culture. In “Fixed,” one of these youth enters into a forbidden love affair, sparking tensions between one of the city’s biggest political families.
