The special event will be held at CSC and will feature members of the original off-Broadway cast. The reading will be followed by comments by Amit Paley, the man who uncovered the long hidden files that inspired the play.
Written by members of the Plastic Theatre and conceived and directed by Tony Speciale, The Secret Court (formerly titled Unnatural Acts) is inspired by true events that occurred at Harvard University. In the spring of 1920, a student’s suicide sparked a campus-wide investigation by a panel of administrators who took it upon themselves to "investigate, expose and ultimately expel a group of homosexual students."
The Benefit Host Committee consists of Moisés Kaufman, Joe Mantello, Paul Marlow, John Lyons, James Lecesne, Barbara and Alan Marks, Steve Mendelsohn, Denise Dickens, Tom Wells, and Lee Tannen.
Unnatural Acts premiered off-Broadway in 2011 at CSC, where its run was extended three times.
Founded in 1998 by the creators of the Academy Award-winning short film Trevor, the Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) young people.
