The Syndicate

an ensemble theater company

Hot Belly is a Queer love story for a late capitalist world. The play follows Veronica and Valerie as they fall in love and travel the United States selling other people's junk. As they try to make a life together, their partnership is challenged by the usual outside forces: money, appetite, spiritual longing, illness, weather patterns, ghosts, and body hair. When you’re living in precarious times, what does “happily ever after” look like, anyway?

Hot Belly is presented by The Tank, a home for emerging artists. (
