After a year-long self-imposed break from creating and writing and self producing, I’m happy to announce my new show: Shawn Hitchins, Ginger Nation.
Ginger Nation marks my departure from cabaret and music to stand-up and storytelling. It’s an incredibly personal show that recounts my two-year process as a sperm donor and reflects on what it means to be ‘ginger and proud.’ It’s hilarious and sarcastic and filled with salty language.
Rehearsals start next Tuesday. I’m happy to work with my close friend Jonathan Soja, who will help shape and sculpt my performance. We did a table read last week and actually did several spit takes (but we were drinking a lot of gin!).
Ginger Nation brings new collaborations with photographers and musicians. I will be updating the website with links and photos to document the creative process. Also, there are some exciting performances coming up and I look forward to announcing them as soon as possible.
All Hail, the red, orange and pale!
