About this show

Dixon Place's HOT! Festival, The 10th annual NYC Celebration of Queer Culture, presents Stephen Nisbet in In September, the Light Changes: Fire Island Tales by Andrew Holleran. This solo performance is conceived and directed by Randy Gener. Staged in collaboration with Holleran, this work-in-progress is comprised of two sexy, provocative stories which describe and envision the sun-drenched dunes and erotic realm of Fire Island, then and now. In the first tale, an excerpt from the novel Dancer from the Dance, Nisbet recreates the flamboyant character of Sutherland, the sharp-witted queen of the '70's gay circuit scene who takes a goldenly beautiful young man named Malone under his wing. In the second tale, set in the mid-1990s and titled "In September, the Light Changes," Nisbet portrays a middle-aged gay man who reflects on the pursuit of sex, the allures of youth, the perils of male beauty and the heartrending nature of gay desire at the end of the Fire Island beach season after Labor Day.
