News   Straights World Premieres At Chicago's Bailiwick
 
CHICAGO--For 90 percent of the population, this play could present a nightmare. Opening May 28 as the latest offering in Bailiwick Repertory's summer-long, gay-themed Pride Series, Dennis Safron's topsy-turvy comedy Straights asks audiences to imagine a supposedly not too distant future when the "homosexual agenda" has succeeded beyond anyone's expectations: Same-sex love has become the norm and heterosexuals are demanding their "special rights." As the press release put it, "What's a boy to do when he discovers his secret perversion--an attraction to women?" Scott Cooper directs the table-turning world premiere. For information call 773-883-1090.
