Join CounterPulse and DINO DINCO for the West Coast premiere of The Homophobes: a clown show
A misunderstood miracle shakes a conservative congregation’s values to its core when their beloved pastor becomes the center of a spectacular firestorm that will forever shatter their notions of sex, gender and intercourse between animate beings. A transcendent trans-comedy of errors featuring mad ministers, divine interventions, confused angels and maybe even the antichrist.
In The Homophobes: a clown show, traditional ideas of religion collide against new theatrical forms and gender expressions. Departing from a traditional first act, the story goes through distortions of conflict and narrative, ending in a broken form that combines all genres in a sort of trans-comedy of errors.” – S. Cook
