New LGBTQ Play ‘Still At Risk’ by Tim Pinckney on Dec 10

Published

on

WEST HOLLYWOOD — Celebration Theatre is the region’s oldest LGBTQ theatre, founded in 1982. It houses a non-profit theatre company in West Hollywood, on the west end of Theatre Row, and specializes in works representing the LGBTQ+ experience.

It received the Margaret Hartford Award for sustained excellence in theater. On December 10, the theater presents staged readings of new plays with the support of the City of West Hollywood’s Arts Division.

Featured is Tim Pinckney’s “Still At Risk” among other new works. Pinckney has written work for Hangar Theatre, New Conservatory Theatre Center and Theatre for the New City.

In the play, Kevin, a surviving activist from the front lines of the AIDS crisis, finds himself struggling to find his place and purpose in contemporary gay culture. When a gay fundraising event threatens to erase the history he was part of creating, Kevin’s anger and passion are renewed and he is confronted with the challenge of how to motivate change in this new climate of visibility.

Along the way, Kevin’s raw and slightly unhinged methods provoke everyone who can help him, damage long friendships and eventually expose some dark secrets.

Hilarious, sharp, and deeply moving, Still at Risk is a powerful look at the personal and political hazards of rewriting the past and one man’s attempt to move forward.

Tuesday, December 10, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. at the City of West Hollywood’s Council Chambers/Public Meeting Room at West Hollywood Library, located at 625 N. San Vicente Boulevard.

Admission is free, however donations are gratefully accepted. For more information, please contact Mike Che at (323) 848-6377 or mche@weho.org.
