Sean Haroldsen, AJ King, and Audrey Palacios discuss their experience of performing in Whatever, Just Wash Your Hands (A Potty Party), and the importance of transgender and non-binary roles.

SYT Artistic Director Kenny Grossman wrote and directed this satirical comedy, which debuted in a one-weekend run Feb. 5-7. The show takes place in a fictional all-gender restroom backstage at a theatre, during public debate over Arizona’s (failed, fortunately) “bathroom bill” to discriminate against transgender restroom users.
