Bison, October 23

On Wednesday, October 23 at 8 pm, Pride Films and Plays presents a staged reading of Bison by Lachlan Philpott, directed by Artistic Ensemble Member Jude Hansen*

Featuring: Alexander St John*, AK Miller, Derek Van Barham*

Do you follow the herd or forge your own path?   From virtual dating to bareback sex, and nightclub hook ups to monogamy, Bison strips back, sucks out and spits at the herd-like behavior of the gay male habitat and the rules that govern the ‘scene’. Bison offers a fresh take on this scene and delves beneath the surface to confront a more varied and complex range of gay masculinities.

Jason is exploring his awakening sexual identity, Tom is traveling the world with his gay guidebook in hand, Simon is hungry for sex, and Richard yearns for the freedom and promiscuity of his youth. Each of them on an endless search to find the right one, the right place, and the right night that is inevitably elusive.

The reading is pay-what-you-can, is on the Thrust Stage of Stage 773, 1225 West Belmont.
