Franklin, Breezy, JJ.
Kicked out for being gay, for being pretty, for being nuts. Their journey is crazy, funny, and frightening, beginning in a conservative city in Oregon—where Grandma’s house is a meth house, where bed’s an underpass, and the safest place you can wander is the mall.
When tragedy hits, they travel to another America. An idyllic liberal town, right smack in the forest. But is there shelter here? Or is home each other? And, when push comes to shove, as it always does…is each other enough? Homefree is a dark urban fairy tale about three cast-out teens and the flip side of the American dream.
This is the first of two plays produced and performed by the Alumni Company at CTC. The second play will be Bowling for Beginners by Diana Grisanti, which runs July 31-August 4.
Summer productions by the Alumni Company at CTC include local actors, CTC teaching artists, Walden Theatre Conservatory alumni, and others who want to create daring contemporary works.
Commonwealth Theatre Center is very happy to partner with Ban Conversion Therapy Kentucky and @The Sweet Evening Breeze LGBTQ Youth Shelter. $5 of every ticket sold will go to The Sweet Evening Breeze.
