Abstract

Andrew Kushnir’s verbatim piece Small Axe probes homophobia among Jamaican-Canadians from the viewpoint of a gay Ukrainian-Canadian, revealing how racism complicates experiences of queer prejudice. It manipulates the audience’s positionality to dramatize the alienation and impotence of the play’s characters, and exposes problems of homonormativity in contemporary queer cultures.
