RUNNING

Genre: Drama, Lesbian+Gay
Written by Sharon E. Cooper, Directed by Pat Diamond

The Milk Can Theatre Company is proud to present the world premier of Running, a new play by Sharon E. Cooper. Three gay men, a widow, and a funeral set the stage to answer the questions - can we escape our past? What happens when we have to confront the lies we tell ourselves? Running not only tackles the issue of coming out about ones sexuality, but also what everyone must face when confronting the truth about ourselves.
Running is directed by Pat Diamond, set design by Ann Bartek, lighting design by Christopher Edwards, costume design by Deb O., Assistant Director/Stage Manager Seth Gamble. Production Assistant James Spry, with performances by Ryan Clardy, Katherine Alt Keener, Lance R. Marshall, and Willie Mullins.
The Milk Can Theatre Company is pleased to announce that we have teamed up with the Gay Men's Health Crisis (GMHC), a not-for-profit, volunteer-supported and community-based organization committed to national leadership in the fight against AIDS, for a special benefit performance of Running. Expanding The Milk Can Theatre Company's definition of community beyond Off-Off Broadway, on May 7th the Company will donate a percentage of ticket sales to GMHC.
Running will be performing in rep with The 5 Borough Plays, a marathon through the
five boroughs of New York City. Featuring five short plays all inspired by a New York
City borough.
