Friday, September 22nd, 7:30 pm: Dionysus on the Down Low by Michael Proft (Cedarburg), directed by Dana Pellebon
LGBT activist David Okello flees his native Uganda after an anti-homosexuality bill is proposed in Ugandan parliament and his life is threatened. Settling in Boston, MA, with Matthew Teitman, an ACLU LGBT expert who helped him obtain political asylum, the two men embark on a relationship. The play explores where the sexual and political meet, and where disparate cultures, values and desires struggle to find common ground.
NOTE: This play contains strong language and sexual situations. It is intended for mature audiences.
