Aunt Jack


  • Theater for the New City 155 1st Avenue New York, NY, 10003 United States (map)

After breaking up with his long-time boyfriend, Norman Sable-Church moves clear across the country, leaving his fathers, George and Jack, in a tizzy. Months later, with George, a prominent gay activist and historian, suddenly takes ill, Norman returns home to set things right and to introduce his parents to Andy, his new partner. Jack, a well-known drag performer and cabaret star, and Phyllis, Norman's biological mother, are dismayed to find that Andy is not who they expected. Tensions build into an inter-generational confrontation about sexuality, identity, and monogamy in this hilarious and touching new play by S.P. Monahan.
