This summer of Stonewall 50 and World Pride, The Other Side Of Silence (TOSOS), NYC’s longest-producing LGTBQ+ theater company, continues to honor our community’s history by producing the NYC premiere of BAR DYKES. Directed by Mark Finley, the audience steps behind a nondescript door where it’ll find a very distinct clientele and world of butches and femmes. Brooke plays Lorraine in this immersive staging of a girls’ night out captured in time as it once was.
Written and Performed by Alexandra LaPlante.
Directed by Brooke M. Haney
