BOSTON CENTER FOR AMERICAN PERFORMANCE 2011
Paul Tate dePoo III
* James Fluhr's OUR LADY is an original solo-performance created as an artistic and political response to gay youth turning to suicide. It tells the story of one boy who confronts the Monster of Hate in a mythical world of fantasy and nightmare. The only way to survive is to stand strong, beautiful and glittering. He must create his own savior and become her.
From the dark shadows of nightmare, one gay boy discovers his destiny. Before everyone, he pulls the gun away from his lips and becomes our savior, Our Lady. In the end, he lives for himself and for every child the world has lost to the Monster of hate.
