OUT OF THE CLOSET


OUT OF THE CLOSET

Out of the Closet is a documentary theatre performance about gays coming out.
This is the first attempt in Russia to speak about this delicate situation on theatre stage.


Sooner or later almost every gay faces the question: How would I say it to my parents? Should I say it?

Our characters, gays of different ages and social status, give different perspectives to this question. Some feel themselves comfortable living with two taboo: parents and job. Others in auto-homophobia attack look for correction in church. Some occasionally get caught and keep lying without a second thought, because they know, that parents, too, are more comfortable with lie.

This diversity of voices serves as the background for the main storyline: the main characters of the play are gay people who value confidence between children and parents since their childhood. They dont want to lie to their parents, they dont want to live a double life, dont want to be tangled in lies. Will they succeed to live not by lies and to be in good relationships with their parents? Protagonists include not only the homosexuals, also their mothers, who tell the stories of their childs coming out from their maternal perspective.
