White Bear Theatre Presents
Different From The Others
by Claudio Macor
Nominated for BEST NEW PLAY and BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR at the Offies!
It's 1919, World War I has ended, men are holding hands in public, Moscow and St Petersburg are gay and free from discrimination and Germany, feeling the full brunt of blame is yet to establish itself. It was then that Magnus Hirschfeld, a German Sexologist and founding father of gay activism seized the opportunity to create the first pro-gay film ever to be made.
This powerful and emotionally charged play charts the film's conception, production and European release alongside the profound impact it had on the fascinating characters involved and on society at large.
Performances start 7:30pm, Tuesday - Saturday, 4pm Sunday
