The startlingly powerful beginning of a new hexology of plays exploring intersectional queer life, BY HIS HANDS crashes into modern-day Huntsville, Alabama, where a devastating altercation between a bus driver and a passenger puts the entire city on edge…and on trial. 2017 Bay Area Playwrights Festival Recipient Nilan turns the mythology and style of the American Epic upside down to reveal the divisions in our society and in ourselves.
