An ambitious, eye-opening tale of gay persecution, circa 1914.

Intermission: None
Seating: General Admission

"The Twentieth Century Way" was awarded the 2011 PEN Award for Drama and the 2010 NY International Fringe Festival Award for Overall Excellence in Production of a Play, garnering critical accolades from publications like the New York Times and Variety. Based on a little-known incident in history, this theatrical thrill ride explores the collision of reality and fantasy as two actors, auditioning for a film, end up juggling roles that eventually lead to entrapment of homosexuals for "social vagrancy" in Long Beach, California circa 1914.

Warning: This play contains male nudity.
