  1. Hi Joel. Thank you for posting this. It came in very handy just now as I was listing the performance history of the play, and I could not remember – a common occurrence these days- if the festival took place in May or March of 2012. I hope you are well and I look forward to future DC Queer Theatre Festivals.
