Broadway's Barry Pearl (Bye Bye Birdie, Oliver!, The Producers) stars in this world-premiere drama as a straight psychiatrist, who's determined to help a conflicted gay colleague in early '70s Philadelphia, where being labeled a homosexual could end a career. Delving into the origins of the controversial practice known as gay conversion therapy, Doctor Anonymous is inspired by the true story of Dr. John E. Fryer, who made LGBT history when he came out of the closet -- though still wearing a mask -- at an American Psychiatric Association convention in 1972. This world-premiere drama celebrating love and liberation was written by New York playwright-psychiatrist Guy Fredrick Glass. Learn More

Everything Will be Different won the 2005 Oppenheimer Award and the 2006 Kesselring Prize.
Everything Will Be Different tells the story of teenaged Charlotte, whose beautiful mother is dead, and in the midst of her own grief and her father’s unwillingness to cope, she turns to the story of Helen of Troy for comfort, convinced that beauty, desire and fame can help her bring her mother back and punish the world that took her away in the first place. Charlotte finds herself searching in fantasy for what she cannot find in reality, and she ends up destroying the life and dreams of perhaps the only friend she ever really had. In the depths of pain, she comes to discover an unexpected grace.
