Dawkins, one of the most talented and exciting playwrights in the US, has crafted a poignant and hilarious look at the modern gay community, a play that is sure to change how members of the community perceive themselves and others. As provocative and thrilling a new play as any around, filled with potential for enormous impact in the city of Chicago and beyond, THE HOMOSEXUALS is a vital addition to the American theatre. Please consider helping us make it happen. We appreciate it so, so very much.

ABOUT THE PLAY:
Starring AFT Artistic Associates Patrick Andrews, Scott Bradley, Elizabeth Ledo and Benjamin Sprunger, as well as Stephen Cone, Eddie Diaz and John Francisco, THE HOMOSEXUALS explores friendship through the lens of sex. On his first night in a midwestern city, Evan meets a circle of men who become his closest friends and potential lovers. Chicago playwright Philip Dawkins' comedic and heartbreaking work is for anyone who's ever fallen in love with a friend. In other words, it's a play for humans.
