A struggling trans actor goes on an adventure of self-discovery after the death of his close friend and captain of his lesbian bowling league


East Coast Premiere.

Struggling actor X’s lesbian bowling league Lavender League Bowling Club is the only thing keeping his head in the right lane as he faces the daily struggles of demanding auditions, demeaning roles, and shady characters. But when the team’s matriarch and captain unexpectedly passes away and an intriguing stranger arrives, X finds himself on a new journey toward introspection, acceptance, and love.

Made by a predominantly trans cast and crew, Lyle Kash’s confident directorial debut announces the arrival of an authentic, idiosyncratic new voice in contemporary LGBTQ+ cinema. DEATH AND BOWLING shows off Kash’s thoughtful and boundary-breaking approach to storytelling — a real game-changer.
