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."
