Helps to Hate You A Little: A Lovestory
Helps to Hate You a Little: a Lovestory is a tragic farce that unfolds in and underneath New York City. It is Persephone but with more kink. It is Wuthering Heights without the death scene, and with a better soundtrack. Its Bill and Teds Excellent Adventure, if Bill and Ted were two dykes in love and Ted had an unsuspecting boyfriend. Helps to Hate You a Little incorporates elements of BDSM, shapeshifting, the absurd, and mixtapes in order to interrogate questions of belonging and foreignness.
