On 2015-02-11, the Den Theater in Chicago, Illinois will have a stage performance about otherkin, Glick's Kin Folk. As far as I know, this is the first stage performance about otherkin, by that name. Description from The New Colony Side Stage:

"Staged Reading of Kin Folk
"February 11, 2015, 7:29PM
"Written by William Glick
"Directed by Evan Linder

"After being recently orphaned, Lucy must reimagine her life. She decides to come out of the closet and reveal her true identity to her family: a dragon named Kreeka. After the announcement, Lucy is more alone than she has ever been, and she must ultimately choose between her family and a new community known as Otherkin. On her journey, she meets a young man claiming to be an elf, a giant gnome named Blubberwort, and a werewolf from Montana who shows her what it means to lead a life driven by a belief in the fantastic.

"Featuring Kate Carson-Groner, Chris Fowler, Sarah Gitenstein, Andrew Hobgood, Steve Love, Liz Sharpe and Stephanie Shum."

Hopefully some otherkin in the Chicago area can see this performance and tell how they feel it represented them. In the comments, please give links to any forum threads, blog posts, or reviews of this event.

First Look at Kin Folk!

Hey everyone!

On behalf of The New Colony, we would to have some local otherkin at the reading to contribute to our talk back afterwards! Since we create new plays, we cannot express how important feedback is for our scripts and we want to be sure we're representing the otherkin community well in our play!

The reading is FREE but reserve your tickets here: http://bit.ly/1DVfk6x. We'll also have finger foods from Whole Foods Chicago and beverages provided from Honest Tea!

We'd appreciate your support and your voices.

Will there be any recording of this performance? If nothing else, perhaps copies of the script could be available somewhere?

Hi there,

I'm a representative of The New Colony, a non-profit theatre company in Chicago. I wanted to follow up on this thread from last year as we are now producing a full production of William Glick's Kin Folk! Performances start this weekend and we'd love for you to join us and hear your thoughts.

For information about the show, performance dates/times and more, please visit http://www.thenewcolony.org/view/kin_folk.

Hope to see you at the theater!
