Profound relatedness and belonging by and for our diverse human community.


We believe in the transformational power of theatre. To fulfill our vision, we will, with the curiosity of Pandora herself seek to:

  • Entertain, engage and inspire our audience, our community and the greater human community by presenting bold, cutting edge and unique theatrical pieces that speak to the Gay, Lesbian, Bi-Sexual, Transgender and Questioning community.
  • Reveal the commonality of all people while investigating the diversity of human nature and particularly the nature of sexual orientation through artistic expression.
  • Examine our individual and collective accountability for our society and community, exposing the beauty and dignity of all people and finally
  • Ignite and celebrate the unfailing hope and triumph of the human spirit.

…you don’t even need to have seen the first one to follow this sequel. …Drury keeps the action moving at a breakneck pace so you don’t have a whole lot of time to think… Craig Nolan Highley, Arts-Louisville.com || My Big Gay Italian Funeral
