Carlos Wagener-Sobrero

Directed by Artistic Associate Topher Leon, the cast includes Rolando Serrano as Trevin and Carlos Wagener-Sobrero as Carlos. Juan Mares Castillo will understudy Carlos.

DESIRE IN A TINIER HOUSE is a two-character drama that examines the challenges of maintaining loving gay relationships amidst societal forces that attack such relationships. It follows the relationship of two gay men in their ‘20s – the Argentine-American Trevin and the Brazilian-American Carlos – in scenes that progress from real to surreal, showing how their relationship changes first from moment to moment and eventually across millennia.

DESIRE IN A TINIER HOUSE runs May 30 – June 29. For more information visit
