Hi, Are You Single?

written and performed by RYAN J. HADDAD
directed by LAURA SAVIA


Exploring the complicated intersection of romance and disability from his unique perspective as a gay man with cerebral palsy, Haddad’s one-man show takes you on a rollercoaster ride through New York’s gay dating scene, where the highs are high and the lows are lonely. He hits the clubs and bars expecting glamour and excitement, but soon realizes his cerebral palsy and his walker make him an outsider. With equal parts humor and hurt, he examines everything from Grindr, drag queens and go-go dancers to intimacy, rejection and judgment. His one request? Bring an attractive male friend with you.

About the festival 

Get Used To It: A Celebration of Queer Artistry

In the early 1990s, a bold slogan united the gay community and simultaneously demanded acceptance: “We’re here. We’re queer. Get used to it.” This winter, the Guthrie is proud to celebrate queer voices from around the globe with three acclaimed pieces that buoyantly and passionately challenge traditional notions of gender and sexuality. Presented as part of the Level Nine Series, this trio of performances (Unexploded Ordnances (UXO), Lashed But Not Leashed and Hi, Are You Single?) will share an illuminating view of the world through an unapologetic queer lens.  

The Guthrie’s Level Nine Series is made possible by the generous support of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
