The Signature Theatre in Arlington will present the Washington D.C. premiere of E. Patrick Johnson's Sweet Tea: Black Gay Men of the South, September 13 - October 9. Rajendra Maharaj will direct.

Based on his award-winning and critically acclaimed book, Johnson stars in this solo play, that includes life stories from black gay men of all ages who were born, raised, and continue to live in the southern United States.

A scholar/artist, Johnson has performed nationally and internationally and has published widely in the area of race, gender, sexuality and performance. His one-man show, Strange Fruit--A Performance About Identity Politics, toured around the country from 1999 - 2004, and he has also toured his staged reading, Pouring Tea: Black Gay Men of the South Tell Their Tales to over 80 college campuses around the country.
