The Twentieth Century Way by Tom Jacobson

Island City Stage and
Empire Stage Presents
The Twentieth Century Way

Book by Tom Jacobson
August 9 – September 9

The Twentieth Century Way, awarded the 2011 PEN Award for Drama and the 2010 NY International Fringe Festival Award for Overall Excellence in Production of a Play, is based on a little-known incident in history.  This theatrical thrill ride explores the collision of reality and fantasy as two actors, auditioning for a film, end up juggling roles that eventually lead to entrapment of homosexuals for "social vagrancy" in the Long Beach, California of 1914.

Helming Island City Stage's first production is their Resident Director Michael Leeds, a Drama Desk Award-nominated director, perhaps best known for writing and directing Broadway's Swinging On A Star, nominated for a Tony Award for Best Musical

Staring:  Clay Cartland and Mike Westrich

Warning: This play contains male nudity.
