By William McMahon

conservative climate of the 1990's when their funding was withdrawn due
to political/sexual content. A dedicated activist and gifted artist,
Tim is touring the country now with Lay of the Land. Bill McMahon had the pleasure of chatting with him after a recent performance at PS 122.

Marc Bovino, Joe Curnutte, Michael Dalto, Stephanie Wright Thompson at the 2010 IT Awards Ceremony
was a great year for Joe Curnutte, who, along with fellow cast members
Marc Bovino, Michael Dalto, and Stephanie Wright Thompson received the
IT Award for Outstanding Ensemble for their critical and audience
acclaimed production of Samuel and Alasdair: A Personal History of the Robot War produced by The Mad Ones at the Brick.
2011 holds even more exciting news for the striking Curnette. The original work Unnatural Acts: The Harvard Secret Court of 1920,
created by Curnette and his collective, The Plastic Theatre, was
hand-picked by The Classic Stage Company for an Off-Broadway run at the
end of their new season!
Created from source material hidden in the Harvard University archives and written by a talented and well-heeled ensemble, Unnatural Acts
tells the true story of an early 20th Century scandal and cover-up
during a dark and embarrassing chapter of intolerance in the history of
America's most famous Ivy League School.
1920, what began as a discreet inquiry into a student suicide led to
the Harvard University Administration launching an intensive
investigation of suspected homosexual activity in Perkins Hall: an
investigation that became a vicious inquisition to expose and expel all
individuals involved in what they termed "homosexualism" that ultimately
convicted eight students, an assistant professor, a recent graduate and
four men unaffiliated with the institution. Not only were the students
asked to leave the school, but all men found "guilty" were forced to
leave the city of Cambridge, and their educational and employment
efforts were thwarted by Harvard officials for the next fifty years.
Plastic Theatre was born of the Harvard Project, a group of artists,
including designers, dramaturgs, directors, actors, producers and
musicians who used improvisation, poetry, song, movement, research and
painstaking de-coding of transcripts to create the piece which is
described in the publicity as more than just a denouncement of
institutional fear and of society's intolerance, but "a true American
tragedy of lost hope and wasted potential."
was conceived and directed by Tony Speciale and written along with
Curnette by Catherine Barricklow, Jess Burkle, Frank De Julio, Heather
Denyer, Max Jenkins, Zach Kleinsmith, James MacBean, Jerry Marsini,
Patrick McCaffrey, Nicholas Norman, Kila Packett, Adam Rihacek and Peter
