A staged reading
By Patricia Loughrey
Music by Thomas Hodges
Directed by Professor Susan Lynskey
Co-sponsored by the Georgetown University LGBTQ Resource Center & The Tagliabue Initiative for LGBTQ Life, and Health Education Services
Dear Harvey, presented as a staged reading to a full house audience in 2010, returns featuring a cast of leading DC professional actors, Georgetown faculty, alumni, and students. Dear Harvey is a tribute play to Harvey Milk, the first openly gay man elected to a major public office in the United States. Drawn from more than 30 interviews, the work weaves together the personal and political writings of Milk with stories from the people he knew and the lives he changed, painting a portrait of a leader and a vision for equality. Dear Harvey celebrates the stories not often found in history books: stories that reach beyond fear and stereotyping to honor the positive contributions of the members of our LGBTQ community past and present.
