The play, created by members of the Plastic Theatre and conceived and directed by Tony Speciale, has attracted commercial producers, who circled the run to gauge its viability for a possible future life. A future engagement has not been announced.
"We are deeply moved by how this story which had been kept silent for 80 years has struck such a responsive chord with audiences, giving voice to a community of young men who were ahead of their time and would have otherwise been forgotten," said CSC artistic director Brian Kulick, in a statement.
Jessica R. Jenen, executive director of CSC, said in a previous statement, "We are seeing an extraordinary number of audience members attending multiple times, bringing friends and colleagues. We're thrilled that we can continue to run this timely and powerful play for one final week at CSC, and look forward to its future life elsewhere."
The cast features Jess Burkle, Joe Curnutte, Frank De Julio, Roe Hartrampf, Roderick Hill, Max Jenkins, Brad Koed, Jerry Marsini, Devin Norik, Will Rogers and Nick Westrate.
