7 Stages presents

Angry Fags (world premiere)

by Topher Payne

Directed by Kate MacQueen with Ibi Owolabi

March 28th – April 14th, 2019

Topher Payne’s dark comedy Angry Fags is back with a vengeance for the Trump era. The all new production conveys what could happen if – even with good intention – fear is what is used to instigate change. Friends, Cooper and Bennett are two loving, genuine and charismatic characters who are met with desperation, anger, and ultimately motivation to “make it better” when they find out one of their tribe – a friend, an x lover, a boy they once knew – has been brutally assaulted. This is a cautionary tale, we must not become what we are fighting against. As our society is spiraling into chaos and division, people are suffering from outrage fatigue. Monsters don’t believe they are monsters, they are passionate about a thing.  If we become the monsters – they win.

An uncompromising Oscar Wilde-meets-Fight Club fantasia about how good ideas go bad, the destructiveness of toxic masculinity, and how no one is really afraid of gay guys, the worse case scenario needed an update.

Brady Rudy at Atlanta Theatre Buzz Reviews Us here: 

“It is, quite simply, one of the best plays of this or any year, being given an almost perfect production at 7 Stages.”

Kathy Janich at ArtsATL reviews us here: 

“Each character has an agenda, each of which clicks against the others like bullets in the chamber of a gun. In this make-believe game of Russian roulette, we wonder when — and at whom — the weapon will fire.”

Mike Fleming of Project Q reviews us here: 

“Atlanta theater doesn’t often rip my heart out and leave me thanking it for the privilege.”
