WHAT I'M UP TO: Unnatural Acts
I am currently the Production Assistant on an incredibly moving play at Classic Stage Company about Harvard's expulsion of gay students in 1920, called Unnatural Acts.
We opened on June 23rd, and we've been getting such great buzz from critics and audience members, we've just extended for another week!
"Unnatural Acts is inspired by events that occurred at Harvard University in the spring of 1920, when a student's suicide sparked a campus-wide investigation by a panel of administrators who convened to investigate, expose and ultimately expel a group of homosexual students. Both intimate and epic, Unnatural Acts explores themes of fear and societal intolerance that are as relevant today as they were 91 years ago."
There is a great article in Playbill right now about the show: http://www.playbill.com/features/article/151825-Unnatural-Acts-in-Hallowed-Halls
You can also learn more about the creation of the show on its website: http://www.unnaturalactstheplay.com
This is such an important piece of theater, and it's so beautifully done with an incredibly talented cast, you CANNOT miss it!
