Marking the 20th Anniversary of its production in Australia, The Night Larry Kramer Kissed Me consists of a string of vignettes covering the autobiographical life of American playwright David Drake throughout the major period of gay rights history in America.
From Stonewall to a new monologue written by Drake specifically for this Sydney production set in a near-distant future of total marriage equality. This is a raunchy, funny theatre piece that all Australian audiences will identify.
This world premiere of Drake’s newly edited work follows a sold-out benefit performance on Broadway last year for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS by ten of the top young rising male talents of the current Broadway generation.
The Night Larry Kramer Kissed Me was originally one of the longest-running one-man shows Off-Broadway in the 1990s. Since then it has been performed all over the world. Drake performed in the production himself at the Belvoir St Theatre during Mardi Gras in 1994.
Directed by Kynan Francis (Take Me Out), The Night Larry Kramer Kissed Me will feature Ben Hudson (The Addams Family, Love Never Dies) and James Wright (Three Winters Green, Relative Merits).
