“The characters and scenarios in this play are drawn from six months of interviews with gay teens, teachers, clergy, psychologists, and other helping professionals. Based on this research, Catalyst commissioned playwright John Lazarus to create a fictional work which would bring to life the stories of those affected by homophobia.” – Catalyst Theatre, 1988
