Come and be a part of this play's history! A special workshop production, this is a script that has never been seen before. An incredible story by our own Artistic Director, Trent Sutton, this is a truly unique event.
A script centering queer characters, written by a local queer playwright, not only will the performance be incredible, but we will be offering the opportunity for a talkback after each performance with the director, writer, and actors, so that you can get a peek behind the scenes in the development of the script and have the chance to process some of the themes that are brought up.
And if that isn't enough to peak your interest, here's a further synopsis of the play:
Love can look like a lot of different things, but one thing is certain: love shouldn’t hurt. In the case of Will and Brandon, the hurt is subtle, lurking just beneath the surface, whereas in the case of Jason and Christian, the hurt is heavy, even tangible. Yet bruises of the heart can hurt just as much as bruises of the flesh, and uniquely queer complexities make untangling relational dynamics even more difficult. The Way He Looks at You is a look into the realities of gay marriage, illustrating that it is difficult in all the same ways that traditional marriages are, thus extending the much-needed conversation surrounding domestic violence to the queer community.
