Short Summary of All We Know Is Not Enough
In a seedy pay-by-the-hour motel, Romeo fights to stay alive. Romeo is trans, running from a hate crime, and his sister Charlie is taking care of him. An ocean away, Nasrin, a refugee, is lost at sea. Linking their stories and their voices are Charlie’s ham radio and a mysterious white dragon. All We Know Is Not Enough is a play that explores what it means to be searching for home and somewhere to call safe.
