News   Last Sunday in June Gets FL Premiere, Concurrent With Off-Bway, June 20 Jonathan Tolins' The Last Sunday in June, his seriocomic exploration of gay relationships in the age of "Will and Grace," will make its Florida premiere June 20- July 27 in a staging by The Caldwell Theatre Company in Boca Raton.

Despite the fact that the play is enjoying an Off-Broadway run at the Century Center, Caldwell snagged the rights and presents the Florida (and regional) premiere. The play freely references gay genre plays and dissects the "types" and conflicts that appear in such works. The play by the author of Twilight of the Golds "begins during Gay Pride Day with a couple's choice to stay home to watch the parade from their apartment window. Their quiet afternoon is turned upside down, however, by a constant procession of friends and neighbors, including a shirtless muscle man, an aging opera queen, a caustic, sexually-charged journalist, an insightful sassy young woman, and a troubled novelist," according to Caldwell production notes. "Liberation, self-awareness, friendship and love make The Last Sunday in June both timely and important."

Caldwell Theatre Company is at 7873 N. Federal Highway (Levitz Plaza) in Boca Raton, FL. For ticket information, visit (561) 241-7432 or (877) 245-7432, or visit www.caldwelltheatre.com.
