The Gay Heritage Project

The Gay Heritage Project

March 22 – 26, 2016
Belfry Mainstage

“Celebratory, upbeat, and deeply moving” Toronto Star

Buddies in Bad Times Theatre, Toronto

Created and Performed by Damien Atkins, Paul Dunn and Andrew Kushnir
Directed by Ashlie Corcoran

Damien Atkins, Paul Dunn and Andrew Kushnir, three of our country’s most gifted creator/performers, set out to answer one question: is there such a thing as gay heritage? The result is a hilarious and moving homage to the people who came before and the events that continue to shape our lives.

“funny, imaginative, thought-provoking, a wide-ranging and wildly entertaining inquiry into what it means to be gay.” Globe and Mail

Paul, Damien, and Andrew bring these people and stories to life onstage in rapid-fire succession, using a physical, comedic, and fast-paced performance style. They offer us an eclectic mix of historic events and personal experiences, creating a portrait of what it means to be gay in 2016, and the heroes and stories that inspire, comfort, challenge, and empower.

“unrelentingly entertaining…one of the most exhilarating evenings in the theatre that you will ever have.” My Gay Toronto
