RaTs:SubwaySongsandStories follows two rats, Rat Princess and Tabby Cat the Sewer Rat, as they journey towards freedom: both sexually and from the oppressive hand of the MTA. Part fact-based narrative and part queer fantasy, RaTs:SubwaySongsandStories is a musical inspired by and set in the New York City subway system, where we watch the rats attempt to live their lives under a system that wants them dead.
