About this show

The Entertainment Agora presents The File on Ryan Carter, a new play written and directed by David Gaard. The dramatic comedy follows the paths of two unlikely friends, a conservative college jock and a radical political activist. From their meeting at a small Midwestern Liberal Arts College during the last years of the Great Depression, thru World War II their friendship matures and deepens as they find it increasingly difficult to deal with what is clearly their mutual physical attraction. It is in post war Hollywood, where their personal lives and feelings struggle under the constraints of a rigid moral double standard, that they reluctantly begin to face up to the emotional depths of their physical relationship. With their professional lives on the cusp of major success comes the courage to accept their feelings for each other, only to have their idyll interrupted when the House On UnAmerican Activities Committee subpoenas one with the implication he must point a finger at the other.
