“IF THE WRITING IS HONEST”—PLAYWRIGHTS DISCUSS THEIR PASSIONS, THEIR POLITICS, AND THEIR PEOPLE

Tennessee Williams wrote: “If the writing is honest it cannot be separated from the (person) who wrote it.” The three playwrights on this panel are well known for exploring and representing gay and lesbian characters, their stories, and their history. Jewelle Gomez (Bones and Ash, Waiting for Giovanni), Moisés Kaufman (Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde, 33 Variations), and Martin Sherman (The Boy from Oz, Bent) will discuss the impulses and influences behind their plays, the writers and performers who inspire them, and the prevalence and diversity of plays by and about gay men and lesbians in contemporary theater. Moderated by Thomas Keith.
