West Coast Premiere
Homos, Or Everyone In America
By Jordan Seavey
Directed by Matt M. Morrow
September 14-October 15, 2017 // Opening September 23
As the pendulum of progress continues to swing, a Brooklyn couple attempts to navigate the complexities of contemporary gay life together. Hopscotching back and forth over the timeline of their relationship, a sensual, hilarious and compelling story of their bond emerges. This brave, cutting-edge new play confronts the lingering dangers and interconnected values of our nation, and the way to our future may be found through our past.

This astonishing new play knocked me over when I first read it. It is incredibly intimate, provocative and intelligent. It doesn’t wear its rebellious political soul on its sleeve, but delivers a subtle dose of where the gay community is socially and politically right at this moment. There is an undercurrent of palpable danger in this personal story of yearning, growing up, breaking apart and reconciliation. Jordan Seavey is one of the Nation’s most exciting and original emerging playwrights, and I couldn’t be more thrilled Diversionary is not only presenting the West Coast Premiere but also the second production of this incredibly timely new play.

“A daringly frank, funny and affecting new play. Mr. Seavey’s portrait of young gay New Yorkers negotiating the sometimes thorny nature of love and intimacy has an arresting, even bruising honesty.”
