Messy Confidence Productions is the brainchild of playwright/director Devin Randall. As a child, Devin’s first lesson on a bike was being pushed down a hill and tumbling towards a busy street. He fell, cut his knee, and never touched a bike for 10+ years. But while on a trip to Key West, and after finding his name added to a bike tour, Devin broke that streak. The following ride was chaotic, messy, and maybe a little embarrassing, but Devin made it out with a smile on his face. And now, Devin Randall is applying that Messy Confidence to his theater craft. He dares to create fun, chaotic displays of theater with confidence and bravery because he doesn’t want to spend 10+ years avoiding something so lovely. And in doing so, he hopes to present speculative fiction that smashes together the magical innocence of youth with the messy realities of adulthood to queer people of color and their diverse allies.
