For the past thirteen years Graham Isador has been in an on again/off again relationship with transgender rockstar Laura Jane Grace. The relationship is characterized by two main factors:
1. Laura Jane Grace is the lead singer, lyricist, and front woman for the punk rock band Against Me.
2. Laura Jane Grace does not know that Graham exists.
Framed as an open letter to the singer, Isador (Soulpepper Playwright’s Unit, VICE) chronicles his teenage years spent in the Southern Ontario punk scene, sharing stories of Internet message boards, strip mall record stores, and concerts in basements and backrooms. Runner up for Outstanding Production at the 2016 Summerworks Performance Festival, Situational Anarchy is about the growing pains of adolescence and the inevitable heartbreak of teenage conviction.
