"Homos, or Everyone in America" Arrives in August at Epic

Epic Theatre Company is following up its smash hit “Constellations” with another unconventional romance.  Jordan Seavey’s “Homos, or Everyone in America” looks at the relationship of two men—called The Writer and The Academic—as they navigate love and dating in New York City over the course of several years.  The show pieces together their time together in fragments that are presented out of time building up to a powerful ending.

“We had no idea our first show this summer would resonate with people the way it has,” says Epic Artistic Director Kevin Broccoli, “I think Homos, or Everyone in America will be equally as meaningful to our audiences.  It’s a perfect companion piece to Constellations, and it has just as many insightful and interesting things to say about modern love.”

David Ledoux, the creator of the Rhode Island Devised Theater Festival, makes his Epic directorial debut, and Broccoli will be featured as The Writer.  Joining him onstage will be Alvaro Beltran (The Boys of St. Matthews) as The Academic, Michael Petrarca (Total Strangers) as Dan, and Angelique Dina (Wolf Hall) as Laila.

Homos, or Everyone in America by Jordan Seavey is being offered as a limited run August 10th – 25th at 50 Rolfe Square, home to Epic Theatre Company.  Tickets are $20 General Admission, $15 for Seniors, and Students/Military are free as part of Epic’s Free Ticketing Program.

“…A daringly frank, funny and affecting new play by Jordan Seavey that’s really — despite the second part of the title — about urban gay life in America, its complexities, its pleasures and, sadly, its dangers…The play is fundamentally about the problems inherent in any romantic relationship, the conflicts small and large that put love to the test, and often cripple it. Which is, I suppose, where everyone in America might come in.—The New York Times.
