Classic Stage Company's production of Unnatural Acts, ripping a page out of Ivy League history to tell of a gay witch hunt at Harvard University, has been extended again, now through July 24 in Manhattan.

The new play created by members of the Plastic Theatre is conceived and directed by Tony Speciale. It's "inspired by events that occurred at Harvard University in the spring of 1920, when a student's suicide sparked a campus-wide investigation by a panel of administrators who convened to investigate, expose and ultimately expel a group of homosexual students."

CSC calls it "both intimate and epic," exploring "themes of fear and societal intolerance that are as relevant today as they were 91 years ago."

This is the second extension of the run, which was previously mentioned to close July 17.
