Stay True, An LGBTQ+ Theatre Company

Thank you for considering making a donation to our campaign!

Stay True, An LGBTQ+ Theatre Company is excited to announce our second fully staged production,  Jonathan Harvey's Beautiful Thing. The production will be directed by Jenn Susi.  

Shy Jamie and athletic Ste are teen boys who live near each other in the London projects. Both think they could be gay, and finally explore their feelings when Ste is allowed to stay over at Jamie's place after an incident with his abusive father. There, the boys grow close and open themselves up to the idea of homosexuality, while Jamie's caring mother, Sandra and quirky teen neighbor, Leah offer much needed emotional support.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have postponed our live production until further notice. We need your assistance in producing this wonderful show that has not been on stage in NYC since 1999! All money raised will go towards the rental of our performance space, rehearsal space, costumes, set, and payment for everyone involved.

While we wait to produce a fully staged version, a benefit virtual reading of Beautiful Thing will take place on Thursday, August 6th, 2020 at 7:30 PM via YouTube Live.
