About This Show

Falling Man and Other Monologues is an evening of solo pieces by Will Scheffer exploring gay love and sexuality. SourceWorks Theatre Artistic Director Mark Cannistraro directs the evening, which includes:

Alien Boy – a precocious 13-year-old boy “comes out of the closet” by forcing his mother to take him to see the film version of “The Boys in the Band.”
Fire Dance – a drag queen prepares in front of a mirror while discussing her idol, an older drag queen who died doing the “Fire Dance” that made her famous.
Tennessee and Me – the ghost of Tennessee Williams inhabits a male hustler and uses him to have all the sex that Tennessee couldn’t get while he was alive. But after the thrill wears off, Tennessee’s craving for intimacy and love returns.
One Man’s Meat – everybody’s favorite gay cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer gives a tender cooking demonstration and dispenses advice for the lovelorn.
Falling Man – a former cha-cha champion passionately remembers his love of dancing and the blistering sexual encounter that infected him with HIV.

There is a 2-drink minimum.
