Open: 02/17/20- Close: 04/04/20 A SIGN OF THE TIMES
A Sign of the Times   is an epic theatrical exploration of life, loss, hope and time.  At a personal and professional crossroads, a man becomes a Stop/Slow traffic controller outside a construction site in an effort to catch his breath and simplify his life.  With his wit and vivid imagination, he invokes Shakespeare, Einstein and more visionaries on his emotional odyssey.   Though he tries valiantly to distract himself from the pains in his present from his recent past, it’s through the saving grace of time that he reclaims his future.  Join him for his entertaining and soulful investigation of life’s meaning in an uncertain world.  Part joyous comedy, part thoughtful tragedy… it is the entirety of life in 95 minutes.

Carson.  As we accompany the protagonist through multiple journeys into and out of the closet, the audience emotionally connects with the very real impacts of conversion therapy, excommunication, and a father who believes that a demon has possessed his son.

A Southern Fairytale is my personal journey which happens to reflect that of so many gay youth finding their truth in a society that is against them,” stated playwright and performer Ty Autry. “Through our previous workshop productions, we discovered a deep story that showcases the trauma created from the lack of acceptance, while having the
