Part of the Take Pride, Bloomfield! Series
A Semi-Staged Reading of this One Act followed by a Q&A with playwright & actors
In a dystopian future, two couples come together to remember life before the gay purge and must decide if they can continue the risk of a weekly dinner together. Playwright Gregory G. Allen's latest play tackles highly debated topics such as LGBT rights, politics, racism, equality, life, and love. This dinning room drama is full of layers that are unwrapped in real time as two couples must make some very tough decisions. With The Handmaid’s Tale such a hit and 1984 recently on Broadway, Allen wanted to share a fictionalized projection of what could possibly happen in the future for the LGBT community...if we’re not careful.
As a member of the LGBT community, Gregory is worried about events happening in America (LGBT losing jobs, turned away from services, rise in hate crimes) as these events can grow into something much larger. This play is meant to spark a conversation to make sure equality stays the norm for ALL. His love of the arts and his advocacy work have combined into this passion piece and he wants as many people as possible to hear it and use it to create change.
Numerous theaters and LGBT organizations around the country currently have the script to decide about hosting their own events. This play only has 4 actors (2M, 2F) and runs less than an hour. It is a great piece to combine with an open forum discussion to talk about the fears that many in the LGBT community have about losing rights. If you work with a theater, pride center, library, or other organization wanting to host an evening - please reach out to Gregory at firstname.lastname@example.org
