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

Above the Fold: In a follow-up to last year’s sold-out production of Moment in the Sun from Inkwell Productions, veteran sportswriters Lefty and Manny have their friendship tested when their papers merge and they’re forced to compete for the one remaining job
_ Red Flags_: With the Olympics having focused our attention on China, and our presidential election fast approaching, this dark comedy looks at America’s trade imbalance and the government’s self-proclaimed “flexibility” in dealing with our civil liberties.
By Elliot Shoenman (Home Improvement, The Cosby Show)
Directed by Mark L. Taylor (Sunset Park, Architect of Destiny)
About the Ticket Supplier: Inkwell TheaterThe Inkwell theater company is dedicated to producing new works that value the writer; a company where young artists and veterans alike can work in an environment of experimentation, support, and collaboration.
In the spring 2004, the company presented Only the Dead Know Burbank by Peter Lefcourt, followed by The Architect of Destiny by 25-year old Michael Gianakos; and Tango 'Til They're Sore, written and directed by 25-year-old Matthew Hancock. The company's fourth play, Sunset Park, by Marley Sims and Elliot Shoenman, ran for fourteen weeks and was published by Samuel French. Then came Michael Halperin's All Steps Necessary, which was based on a meeting called by Hermann Goering three days after the Kristallnacht pogrom. In 2007, Inkwell produced Moment in the Sun and in 2008 Old Glories. 2011 brought the Ovation-nominated production AfterMath, starring Annie Potts.
