Queer Themed Play March 18th
On March 18 at Mahon Hall, Theatre Alive is presenting a staged reading of a wonderful play by Martin Sherman (Bent and others). It’s Gently Down the Stream, a funny, emotional roller coaster with three gay characters. It features an older man with a younger lover who is obsessed with the cultural history of LGBTQ performers and history. He films his older lover telling stories of famous gay personalities, activists, tragedies, and more. A third man enters the picture.
This is an amazing play, with many references to true queer history and real people. It is also very funny and loving, with references from everything from World War II to the near present. You’ll laugh, but you will probably also cry. Bring tissues. Bring your friend. Bring your lover. Straight or gay, male or female. Come learn how storytelling is vital, and that moving on with your life will keep you alive.
