Quince Productions‘ LGBT theater festival GayFest! may be entering its last few days, but, lucky for you, there are still several opportunities to catch a handful of its best productions before the lights go down.
Friday will be your last chance to catch local playwright Daniel Talbott's trio of short plays, "You Know My Name," Geoffrey Nauffts's Next Fall, and the much-talked-about The Haunted Host, which festival director Rich Rubin says is America's first full-length gay play. For more information about when these shows are playing, go here.
Saturday will see the close of Some Are People, Kathleen Warnock's short play about two lesbians and a drag queen who congregate for an evening of revelations in a gay bar in Provincetown. Steven Fales' one-man show Confessions of a Mormon Boy gets two showings on Saturday. The internationally acclaimed production focuses on Steven Fales (pictured) and his stories of excommunication, divorce, prostitution, and drugs. Showtimes for that show, and Some Are People are listed here.
