About This Show

About Face Theatre presents The Homosexuals, a world premiere by Philip Dawkins, directed by Artistic Director Bonnie Metzgar.

The Homosexuals is a comedic and heartwarming work for anyone who’s ever fallen in love with a friend. The play follows Evan, a young gay man who moves to the Midwest with nothing but the shirt on his back. When a kind man invites him to a party his first night in town–the circle of friends he meets that night have an impact on his life that he (nor we) could ever imagine.

Chicago playwright Dawkins’ epic play examines the fears, doubts and hopes facing the gay community in the 21st century.
