At the intersection of art and social justice, Outcast Theatre Collective (OTC) is committed to asking tough questions, and following through with answers. Outcast Theatre Collective is exploding back into live theatre with the first of their shows this season. Written by Michael Proft, Dionysus on the Down Low is being brought to a stage near you for its World Premiere – live at Stageworks Theatre in Channelside.
After LGBT activist David Okello (played by T.R. Butler) flees his native Uganda when his life is threatened in the wake of a proposed anti-homosexuality bill, he takes shelter in Boston with Matthew Teitman (played by Jonathan O’Brien), an LGBTQIA rights advocate with the ACLU. As Matthew helps David obtain political asylum, personal, political, and sexual tensions rise as two men with disparate cultural values and desires struggle – sometimes explosively – to find common ground.
Performances will take place July 22nd – 24th at 8:00 PM with a Sunday matinee performance on the 25th at 3:00 PM. Outcast Theatre Collective extends their thanks to Stageworks Theatre for the use of their space; all performances will be staged at Stageworks Theatre at 1120 E Kennedy Blvd suite #151, Tampa, FL 33602.
Tickets are $30 and can be purchased through Outcast’s website. For more ticketing information, visit our website: https://www.outcasttheatre.org/dionysus.
