Received the PEN Center USA West Playwriting Award! Critic's Pick

"Playwright Luis Alfaro explores the dimensions of spiritual diversity in his poignant, evocative dramatization of stories from the gay and lesbian community… Alfaro approaches the subject of faith with a humility and jocular skepticism that is clearly born of struggle, both personally and for the gay and lesbian community as a whole." —Backstage
By Luis Alfaro

Cast: Flexible cast. As many as 19, as few as 8. This play is part of Cornerstone Theatre's Faith-Based Theater Cycle, a four-and-a-half-year series of projects exploring the question: How does faith unite and divide us? It is a theatrical celebration and examination of a lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender interfaith community, examining the complex and dynamic relationship between faith and identity. The story is told in a vignette, modern-vaudeville-style, at once a choral assemblage and a presentation of monologues and scenes that chronicle a community in search of its authenticity. The play was created by the playwright and 19 participants whose life stories form the basis for this multidisciplined theatre piece. Flexible staging. Approximate Running Time: 1 hour, 20 minutes.
