The Boys in the Band by Mart Crowley
Lifes a goddam laugh riot!
Theres a party tonight.
Nine men gather in a New York apartment for a birthday party. Harold, a self-avowed pock-marked, Jew fairy, receives a surprise gift: a beautiful male hustler, and party host, Michael, gets an unwanted surprise of his own in the shape of a figure from his past. As the booze is drunk and the night progresses, the mood swings from hilarity to heart-break.
Mart Crowley's 1968 ensemble drama is said to be the first play in which gay characters were openly represented and as such it is a milestone of queer theatre. It is a dark, lively, hilarious, touching, scathing and heart wrenching piece.
Performances will be held @ The Atelier at 1078 Drouillard Rd in Windsor, ON. Seating is limited so we encourage you to buy or reserve tickets in advance. $1 from every ticket sold will be donated to Windsor Pride Community
*** This play deals with tough issues; sexuality, racism, divorce, substance abuse, and uses some strong language. We recommend 16+ but leave that to your discretion. ***
