Theatre inspired by the love, laughter and life of LGBT culture is on stage in Long Branch during this Pride Month.
"The Silver Bell" is a love story that transcends space and time as people know it, between the characters Mico and James.
"It's the kind of story about these kinds of universal things, which are love and grief, and then it's shot through with this science fiction element. And for me that's something that I love doing. I used to teach science and math, and I enjoy that side of the world and that side of the brain," says playwright and actor Alan Flanagan.
He plays Mico. Brendan O'Rourke is James.
With a minimal set and maximum imagination, the two take the audience on a journey across alternate universes.
"The Silver Bell" is one of five gay-themed plays on stage this month at New Jersey Repertory Company in Long Branch in its Gay Pride Theatre Festival. It also includes a gallery exhibit of works by LGBT artists and a photo portrait show of members of the local LGBT community.
Tickets are currently on sale for festival programming, which runs through June 25.
