Written by nationally-known playwright Wesley Middleton, Unsorted is a wildly imaginative story in which the characters are Clothings. One day, bully-boss Jacket insists all Clothings get sorted, threatening banishment for failure. But the Clothings are “mixety” characters, and separate categories make no sense to them. Unsorted presents themes of belonging and self-worth, celebrating personal identity and the importance of acceptance. Full of rich metaphor, this play is designed to spark discussion about the ways we sort ourselves and each other, the dangers of labeling and exclusion, and the right all of us have to claim who we are. Appropriate for adults and children age five and up. Recommended for teens and tweens.

The play lasts approximately 40 minutes and will be followed by an audience talk-back with the actors and creative staff.
