Plot[edit]

Fruit Fly is a musical comedy about Bethesda, a Filipina performance artist finding home in the unlikeliest places. She moves into an artist commune in an attempt to workshop her latest piece which deals with finding her lunch. In the process, she finds an artistic family, clues of her lunch’s whereabouts, and the startling possibility that she just might be a fag-hag.

Subplots include her relationship with her roommates in the artist commune, and their relationships with each other.
