Love the production, the entire cast was wonderful. The accents were amazing. This is a must see for the beginning of Celebration's 29th year.

This is a great story about how homophobia shapes the life of young teenagers. It tells the story that many of us experienced. I like very much both the movie version "GET REAL (1998)" and this theatre play version "WHAT'S WRONG WITH ANGRY."...continued

Description

Written at a time in British history when the age of consent for homosexuals was five years older than for heterosexuals, legislation called Section 28 prohibited schools and local authorities from depicting homosexual relationships as an acceptable view of family life. While school was the setting for romance with Mr. Popular, John Westhead, Steven spent his life at home telling his parents what they wanted to hear. When fortune takes an unexpected turn, Steven discovers his feelings towards John are reciprocated. In order to discover “it gets better,” sometimes you gotta get angry!

Lee, Kelly Schumann and Daniel Taylor*. Understudies:  Cassidy Boyd*, David Coretti, Mark Jacobson, Royce Johnson, Maury Morgan*, Joseph O’Malley*, Teya Patt*, Tobit Raphael and John Schumacher*.
