Straight: A Conversion Comedy

Straight: A Conversion Comedy

Straight is a hilarious and subversive excursion into the world of conversion therapy, where gays and lesbians are reputedly "cured" of their homosexuality and made "straight."

"Exacts sweet revenge... with wit, style and the occasional flash of naughtiness."
Los Angeles Times

Join acclaimed writer/performer David Schmader as he plunges into the heart of the "Exodus Movement" -- attending sessions with a German psychoanalyst, going undercover at "ex-gay" support groups, and engaging in an intensive crash course in Christian heterosexuality ... deep in the heart of Texas.

Straight pulls no punches. Schmader deploys a wry honesty that spares neither Christian conversionists nor the unconverted in this uproarious take on sexual reprogramming. Blending an essayist's insight with the spark of stand-up comedy, Schmader confronts difficult questions, rejects easy answers, and gets to the bottom of what it means to be "straight."
