Are you now or have you ever been?

Set in 1950, this new play by rising playwright and screenwriter Topher Payne explores the challenges of maintaining a queer family during the McCarthy era. Based on the early history of the gay rights movement, this acerbic comedy of love and marriage in the U.S. State Department depicts the challenges of being in the closet.

Directed by James L. Dick
Scenic & Sound Design by Chelsea Pitts
Lighting Design by Abbey Lynn Smith
Costume Design by Katelynn Schultz
Dramaturgy by David Ruis Fisher
Stage Management by Hollyanna Mathews
