STRAIGHT A Conversion Comedy
Written and Performed by David Schmader
Directed by Andrew Thornton
December 2- 19
STRAIGHT is a hilarious and subversive comedy about the world of conversion therapy, where gays and lesbians are reputedly cured of their homosexuality and made straight. Plunging into the heart of this highly charged territory–from going undercover at ex-gay support groups to an intensive crash course in Christian heterosexuality deep in the heart of Texas–Schmader blends an essayist’s insight with the spark of stand-up comedy to confront difficult questions, reject easy answers, and get to the bottom of what it means to be straight.
