The Twentieth-Century Way
World Premiere by Tom Jacobson
Directed by Michael Michetti
April 29 - June 20, 2010

Extended through June 20, 2010

Based on a little-known incident in LA history, this theatrical thrill ride explores the collision of reality and fantasy as two actors juggle various roles to entrap homosexuals for "social vagrancy" in the public restrooms of 1914 Long Beach. But are they actually entrapping each other? Who they are and what they need is a mystery that deepens with every twist and turn.
