TheatreFIRST continues to welcome our community back home to Live Oak Theater with an exciting new Season of shows that interrogate the American socio-political climate, and urge home-grown activism. Theatre has the ability to amplify beautiful and painful truths, and we are holding space for theatre making that does deep and necessary work with our 2022/23 Season. We offer three shows that invite conversations and investigate solutions to three of America’s largest, looming challenges: politically fractured relationships, gay rights, and reproductive justice. Are you ready?

On a random, quiet evening, two men make the unlikely decision to fall in love.
