Set in New York City, the play, press notes state, "spans from the 1920 Hamptons’ shores to the suppressed 50's, piano bars of the 60's, bath houses of the 70's, hospitals of the 80's during the AIDS crisis, chat rooms of the 90's and a legal gay wedding in the present. With over 50 characters McNally captures the historical significance and honors the ones who have brought us to our current fight for equal rights. Some Men goes beyond the gay experience and gives a universal look at how we find, and lose, ourselves in an ever-evolving world."
Proceeds will benefit the "I AM Love" Campaign, whose mission "is to dis-empower religious bullying and homophobia, in all ages and walks of Life, by first learning to Love the Self. Through screenings of [Terrence McNally's 'Corpus Christi'] over the next year, combined with a performance of the play in select cities, our company will also conduct educational and arts-based workshops alongside gay/religious leaders in less tolerant communities around the country."
