What was it really like being gay before the AIDS crisis? Come see OUT, between April 24 and May 5th at the Buddies and Bad Times Theater in Downtown Toronto! It’s a one-man play, creatively crafted by director Clinton Walker, using real life events from Greg Campbells personal experience, OUT is set in Montreal in 1977, at the height of the disco era. Glen is 17 years-old and decides to kick open the closet door. While keeping it secret from his parents, he celebrates his new gay identity by going to discos, joining a Gay Youth Group, and investigating several bedrooms. With his two best friends, he goes to New York City for the Gay Pride March, where their lives are changed forever. This is a tour tour-de-force performance by Dora-nominated actor Greg Campbell who brings twenty-five characters to life in this hilariously moving story.
