COMING OUT was originally produced at The Abbey Theater of Dublin, in Dublin, Ohio, October 4-19, 2013, by Creatures Plays Corporation, and was presented by special arrangement with Riverdale Literary Holdings, Inc.
This was the original production announcement. There were significant changes made in the cast and crew in the following weeks, including the departure of the associate director and several cast members, mostly due to work conflicts. The author would also decide to concentrate on acting and script revisions, and a new director would be brought in.
Admittedly, this was a coincidence, as the story points out, but given the decidedly gay friendly, pro marriage equality nature of the play, this was a case where serendipity needed to be played up. Naturally, we’d have mentioned any anti-abuse days (spousal or child) if they’d come up as well, that being another major theme.
In what is perhaps a rather blatant attempt to win Best Original Play in the 2013 BroadwayWorld.com Columbus Awards, we’re putting the entire play on line so that theater lovers everywhere can see it and, we obviously hope, vote for us.
