Pineapple Project at the North End Library

June 4th, 10:30 – 11:30 a.m. at the North End Branch Library

In honor of Pride Month, please join us for the Pineapple Project, an original play about gender, creativity, and each child’s freedom to be who they are.

The Pineapple Project was born during a moment of play between actor Mal Malme and her niece in which her niece said “Boys can’t be princesses!” As a gender non-conforming person and theater artist, Mal couldn’t ignore this statement. This led Mal and colleagues Becca A. Lewis and Renee Farster-Degenhardt to create a theater piece for children ages 3-8 to broaden the gender conversation and validate each child’s identity.
