by Topher Payne

March 31 - April 8, 2018, William Inge Memorial Theatre

Set in 1950, this new play by rising playwright and screenwriter Topher Payne explores the challenges of maintaining a queer family during the McCarthy era. Based on the early history of the gay rights movement, this acerbic comedy of love and marriage in the U.S. State Department depicts the challenges of being in the closet.

This production includes use of homophobic language indicative of the period.

Our 2017-18 season is sponsored by Truity Credit Union. The University Theatre is partially funded by the KU Student Senate Activity Fee.
