The Gay Heritage Project in Rhubarb

02.13.2012

“Part of what is interesting and unique about The Gay Heritage Project is that it is three openly gay actors and playwrights. Obviously, there are lots of gay people in our business, but there are fewer than you would think who are openly gay and are actors and playwrights,” says actor/writer Damien Atkins. Atkins says that when partner in crime Paul Dunn was researching his part, “he was alarmed and blown away by the book The Men with the Pink Triangle, and he became upset that he didn’t know more about his heritage as a gay person.” After talking, exchanging books, researching and creating text by way of improvisation, the team thought that taking part in the Rhubarb Festival would be a logical next step, “to invite an audience in to have a look at what we’re doing,” Atkins says. “There are a few scenes that I find pretty screamingly funny and a few that I find devastatingly sad. It’s going to be a roller coaster ride for the audience.” 

The Gay Heritage Project is on Sat, Feb 18 and Sun, Feb 19, as part of the Rhubarb Festival at Buddies, 12 Alexander St. buddiesinbadtimes.com

      I'm disappointed that the snob did not pick up on the dileung banjos at the start of the radio segment. It seems to me that any association with certain characters in "Deliverance" does not help their case.
