JULY 13TH – AUGUST 6TH
The Other Side of Silence (TOSOS) presents
HOUSE OF CHAVIS
All Performances 7:00pm
The Siggy Theater @ The Flea
In Robert Macke’s play House of Chavis, a father discovers his estranged son is competing on a reality television series … as a drag queen. The play is a funny and moving ex-ploration of the ties that bind families, both biological and chosen, as well as the forces that drive them apart. Vernon hasn’t seen or spoken to his son Vincent since the traumatic incident eight years prior that drove the boy away. The only news he gets of his son’s whereabouts comes though Vernon’s big-hearted sister-in-law Paulanne, so it comes as something of a shock when a film crew shows up on Vernon’s doorstep asking for permission to film him for a segment on the re-ality television show. “This beautiful play celebrates the ‘how our families relate to us’ concept; something we all carry with us in our journeys as members of the LGBTQIA+ community,” said TOSOS artistic director Mark Finley. “What I love about this play is its unique and contem-porary view on something deeply personal to each of us and universal to all of us.”
THE OTHER SIDE OF SILENCE (“TOSOS”) is dedicated to preserving the theatrical heritage of the LGBTQIA+ community through the development of new plays by emerging artists, as well as revivals of established works. Our productions honestly explore the unique LGBTQIA+ experience and cultural sensibilities in a life-affirming and respectful way.
