LATE NIGHTS WITH THE BOYS:
CONFESSIONS OF A LEATHER BAR CHANTEUSE

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Lesbian+Gay, Festival, Other
a novel by Alex Bond; directed by Steven Yuhasz

 With delightful and poignant tales of a Southern Songstress and her gay family, Alex Bond and David Carson read selections from Ms. Bond’s novel and transport you to Dallas 1977, a magical time before HIV/AIDS, but not before ignorance and prejudice. A favorite at the 2008 San Francisco Fringe and the 2009 Fresh Fruit Festival.
---
A reclusive former Southern debutante/cabaret performer in her sixties, Anna Zander hires Craig Bauer to help her write about the best years of her life. She recounts the tales of singing in the gay leather bars of Dallas (when she looked like a drag queen and sang coloratura!). As she reveals memories, lessons, and losses… the collaboration on the book grows, and so does the friendship between Anna and Craig.

ADVISORY: adult language and content.

The selections will be read by Alex Bond (Flamingo Court), and David Carson (Nixon’s Nixon).
