About the play: In The Place That Made You, transgender auto mechanic Jonah (C. Michael Menge) is having a bad month. Jonah’s childhood friend and protector Ben (Ashley Hovell) went off to war overseas but didn’t make it back. On the eve of Ben’s funeral, Ben’s father Bud (Kyle Dekker) informs Jonah that they’re about to become both jobless and homeless, because Bud wants to sell the garage and start a new life somewhere warm. Couch-surfing at Jonah’s friend (and ex-girlfriend) Emily’s place just seems to be making Emily’s (Jamila Joiner) shaky marriage to Brendan (Adan Varela) that much shakier. Add to that the recurring appearance of Ben’s wise-cracking ghost in unexpected places, and a curious white whale just off the coast of their small New England town of Piedmont, and Jonah’s complicated life is about to get a whole lot weirder.
