The cast for the European premiere of Jordan Seavey’s
“Homos, or Everyone in America” at the Finborough Theatre, was recently announced. Josh Seymour directs Tyrone Huntley (“The Academic”), Harry McEntire (“The Writer”), Dan Krikler (“Dan”) and Cash Holland (“Laila”). The production opens for a four-week limited season on August 9, 2018, with previews from August 7, 2018, playing until September 1, 2018.
“Equality is here — now what? In a supposedly ‘post-gay’ America on the brink of passing marriage equality, a first date at a New York bar starts two men on a fearless, funny and fragmented journey leading up to a historic moment of change. Jordan Seavey’s raw and provocative portrait of a love story explodes attitudes, emotions and prejudices that sit at the heart of relationships across the world. This dazzling kaleidoscope of a play asks us all the question — are personal and political choices really all that different?” says the official release.
“Award-winning director Josh Seymour returns to the Finborough Theatre following the sell-out cult hit ‘Adding Machine: A Musical’ to direct the European premiere of ‘Homos, or Everyone in America,’ a Critics’ Pick in the New York Times for its Off-Broadway premiere, named one of New York Magazine’s 10 Best Theater Events of 2016 and The Advocate’s Top 10 New York Theater of 2016,” says the release.
