Queer Gadfly Theatre Productions

queerCherokee Park United Church will host QUEER!, a Gadfly Theater production, on Saturday, January 24, 7:30 p.m. The suggested donation is $10. Written in house by Gadfly Theatre founders Immanuel Elliott & Cassandra Snow, Queer! brings you the shockingly true stories of love, hate and acceptance from, by and about members all along the GLBTQA* spectrum. From coming out to coming to terms, QUEER! examines what it takes to forge a community and what we do to fit in in a society that tells us we don’t.
Gadfly Theatre Productions is entering our FIFTH season of queer, feminist art.

This passionately progressive organization produces queer, feminist art that everyone can laugh, cry, and relate too. We are starting our FIFTH SEASON highlighting the stories and issues relevant to women and LGBTQIA* persons, and this year we’re taking the PlayGround to a macabre place featuring mainstage events that either parody or ascribe noir, Gothic, and horror genres.
