Event description

Description

We are excited to announce our first feature-length production, There Are No Gays In Chechnya. This will be a stagedreading which will include a talk-back with the creative team.

Plot Details:

Joseph, Alexei, Sofia, and Daryia must work together to avoid being outed and escape the gay purge sweeping across Chechnya. Over time, questions begin to rise around who they can trust, and where they are going. However, they must decide quickly as they are running out of time.

This project asks why the world did not respond as quickly to this event as it did to others (the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the gas attack by Assad in Syria), and why has it taken over two years for any official action from world leaders?

This project aims to give voice to those currently being persecuted, and to those who have been killed by the purge in Chechnya. We want to highlight the continued need for education and advocacy for Queer rights around the world.

This production was made possible by:

The Canada Arts Council

The Waterloo Regional Arts Fund
