Community Partnership

Community Partnership

National Queer Theater is partnering with The New Group to provide resources for community outreach and engagement for their production of Donja R. Love's one in two.

Three young men. One of them will be chosen. They will tell ‘his’ story. A story they’re forced to tell over and over again about his new reality and how he lives with it – until he can’t. With riveting simplicity and theatricality, Donja R. Love (Sugar in Our Wounds, Fireflies) turns his emotionally frank and lyrical voice to an intimate story that is shared by many. one in two is a play about what theater can do, and what it means to not be alone. Stevie Walker-Webb (Ain’t No Mo’) directs this world premiere for The New Group.

NOVEMBER 19, 2019 - JANUARY 12, 2020

Tuesday – Friday at 7:30pm
Saturday at 2pm and 8pm
Sunday at 2pm and 7:30pm
