Drunk Queer History Returns!
One part storytelling, one part improv, two parts history lesson, shaken well with a liberal dose of alcohol. Warning: these stories are based on true events, but we never know what will happen when we give the storyteller a few drinks.
Taking inspiration from the television show “Drunk History”, a group of improv artists perform scenes from queer history based on stories told to them by an inebriated “historian.” Our first show left our audience laughing with gems like "Okay, people! Operation Gay Agenda is a go!" and selections from Lavender Panic: the Musical by our improv artists. We don't know what you'll learn at this show, but we know it will be good.
This go around, we’re partnering with the Bryant Lake Bowl to bring you an all new experience. Join us on May 21st where we’ll be shoving cocktails at “historian” Chandler Daily who will regale us with stories you didn’t learn in school. Improv artists Ally Van Siclen and James Satter will do their best to make sense out the drunken ramblings and form a cohesive scene based on the boozey history lesson. If you’re feeling particularly festive and want to join in the fun we’ll have special Gadfly themed cocktails for you to enjoy. Although we won’t be please drink and view responsibly.
This show is a fundraiser for Gadfly Theatre Productions, a queer and feminist theatre company based in Minneapolis. Gadfly believes that marginalized voices should be heard, and is working to provide the space for that to happen. The performance space they are raising funds for will be an artistic haven for audiences and artists, a place to explore, create, and open safe dialogues about queer and feminist issues.
