Suggest Plays Here

Use this thread to post suggestions for specific plays or particular themes and situations you would like to see in the theatre.

For General Suggestions: Tell us what you would like to experience in the theatre. Perhaps you are most interested in lesbian plays, which tend to get far less attention than gay male plays. Are you interested in the experiences of people coming out to friends and families. Maybe gender bending is your thing. You might be interested in a documentary style theatre like The Laramie Project that uses a real incident as the focal point of the story telling. These are just a few examples of the type of comment we are hoping for.

For Specific Plays: Please include the title and the author. Feel free to add more information such as a description of the story and characters, why you would like to see us perform this play, where we can find it etc.
