Dionysus on the Down Low
by Michael Proft

A Live Online Reading

Directed by Joshua Goff and Barry Silber

Friday, August 14th at 8 p.m.
Saturday, August 16th at 3 p.m.

LGBT activist David Okello flees his native Uganda after an anti-homosexuality bill is proposed in the Ugandan parliament and his life is threatened. Settling in Boston, MA, with Matthew Teitman, an ACLU LGBT expert who helps him obtain political asylum, the two men embark on a relationship.

Two women round out the cast: Ina, Matthew’s strong-willed mother, and Naome, David’s good friend, also Ugandan, also homosexual, who’s waiting for her two children to receive asylum and come to America.

The play explores where the personal, sexual and political meet, where disparate cultures, values and desires struggle — sometimes explosively — to find common ground.

Presented with the support of the Arts Council of Hillsborough County and the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners.

Adult language and some mature content.

Cast:
David: TR Butler
Matthew: Marshall Corzette
Ina: Midge Mamatas
Naome: Martha White
