When Last We Flew by Harrison David Rivers
A funny, relevant, uplifting and unique play that debuted to GLAAD Media Award winning acclaim at the New York Fringe Festival and is having its West Coast debut right here in San Diego at Diversionary. It addresses important and challenging topics (such as being African-American and LGBT in today’s teen culture, how coming to terms with sexuality affects families, and theatre’s power to change lives) head-on by using an exciting mix of poetic language, humor and theatrical magic. "When Last We Flew" special PFLAG night Friday Nov. 30
When Last We Flew is a moving and often humorous look at life in small town America from a contemporary teenage perspective. After stealing his local library’s only (and unread) copy of Tony Kushner’s Angels in America, misfit teenager Paul locks himself in the bathroom and begins reading the landmark play. He soon finds that his life and the lives of those around him in his small Kansas suburb are about to take flight, and over the course of a seemingly ordinary day, extraordinary things start to happen.
Diversionary Theatre has decided to call the series of events Friends + Family @ Diversionary. Having PFLAG participate via advertising to the membership and offering a discount when PFLAG is mentioned is a wonderful step in reaching out to our straight allies and let them know that it is an evening to socializewith like-minded folks and celebrate and thank them for their support of the LGBT community. F + F @ Diversionary will kick off with an event for when last we flew on Friday, Nov 30th. Looking ahead, it will continue with special events for Birds of a Feather on Friday, February 15th and for The Further Adventures of Hedda Gabler on Friday, April 12th.
The code FRIENDS will give a $5 discount on the ticket price for the Friends + Family at Diversionary performance of When Last We Flew on November 30. www.Diversionary.org
