WINNER - BEST NEW PLAY - Toronto Fringe Festival, 2017. September 1964. Behind the doors of a public washroom in a Washington D.C. park, two lives linked to two of America's most important figures collide when a white man seeking sex meets a black male stranger. Steven Elliott Jackson's bold, affecting play explores issues of race, sexuality, masculinity -- and the cost of reconciling each to two disparate human beings with a shared innate need. Written by Steven Elliott Jackson. Directed by Tanisha Taitt. Featuring Kwaku Okyere and Conor Ling. Lighting Design by Brandon Goncalves. Stage Managed by Tara Mohan.
