Playwright Tom Jacobson is known for tackling challenging themes, and his latest effort - recounting a scandalous little-know chapter in Southern California history - is among his boldest . . . bringing [his] central themes of role-playing, self-deception, and moral responsibility to a shattering conclusion.
Synopsis

Based on the true story of two actors who hired themselves out to the Long Beach Police Department in 1914 to entrap “social vagrants” in public restrooms, this highly theatrical tour-de-force brings to life a little known episode in Long Beach history and the history of LGBTQ rights.  As these two actors become absorbed within their play-within-a-play, they explore sexual identity, institutional corruption, self-deception, and the mysteries of the craft of the theatre. This timely look at another time warns of the dangers of a government infringing on the private right to love.

Warning: This Production contains Strong Adult Content and Full Nudity.
