About the Plays:

Twentieth century theatre is seen as a powerful force in bringing gay and lesbian characters and themes out of the closet and into the spotlight. These dramatic selections in Out Plays share themes of oppression countered by love, fear, anger, and humour – not only gay or lesbian, but universally human.

With a foreword by Harvey Fierstein and a new introduction to The Boys in the Band by Mart Crowley, included are:
Torch Song Trilogy, by Harvey Fierstein;
The Ritz, by Terrence McNally, a playwright who has received four Tony Awards;
The Baltimore Waltz, by Paula Vogel;
• and many more.
