FringeNYC Comedy Gay Camp Takes Aim at Gay "Cure" Movement

News   FringeNYC Comedy Gay Camp Takes Aim at Gay "Cure" Movement Gay Camp, a new farce about a gay reform camp that seeks to cure people of their homosexuality, will begin performances Aug. 11 at HERE as part of the New York International Fringe Festival.

Philip Mutz and Susan-Kate Heaney co-authored the 75-minute play that will run through Aug. 22. The cast will feature co-writer Mutz alongside Christian Mansfield (42nd Street) and Ken Urso. Here's how it's billed: "Gay Camp is a quick-change farce that follows the stories of several young campers at a gay reform camp. They have been sent away by their parents to be 'fixed.' Instead, they learn how to love – themselves and one another. Start with a deliciously evil headmaster and a closeted lesbian guidance counselor, throw in a few electrified fences, disco balls, boy-boy love, girl-girl love, gay Twister, Rick Santorum surprises, slow-motion fantasies, whips, handcuffs, flannel, and more innuendos than you can shake a dildo at, and you've got Gay Camp. Gay Camp is fast, funny, and not pulling its punches as it takes on the anti-gay morons in America."

Gay Camp is already among the top-selling productions of the 2012 FringeNYC, which officially launches Aug. 11.
