From the show:

YOU’VE FAILED GOD & GOD’S FAILED YOU. PUT ON SOME MAKEUP & TELL THE STORY, TO MAKE HOLY WHAT’S PROFANE.

Ryan Conarro's SAINTS OF FAILURE explores the collision of queer and Christian identities in America, through storytelling, original organ music, and live makeup transformations. Ryan's stories weave with Risha Rox’s makeup design and Andrew Drannon's organ accompaniment to invite audiences into memories of loss, mystery, discovery, and liberation.
