An Evening of Five Short Plays
at Harvard's Leverett Library

"Gehri Dosti: Five Short Plays with a South Asian Bent" opens October 23 for a limited four week run at Harvard University's Leverett Old Library Theatre.

Written and directed by Paul Knox, the plays were developed at Circle East in New York City and have been acclaimed individually at festivals from New York to Cape Town, South Africa. This marks the first time the plays will be presented collectively as a full evening of theatre.

"Gehri Dosti" explores themes of same-sex love in South Asia, taking audiences on a stylistic and emotional journey that cuts across cultures to provide a glimpse into the world of the millions of individuals who are marginalized by their sexuality and too often rendered dangerously invisible.

The plays are an effort to bring increased awareness to the issues of sexual minorities in the developing world. In addition to AIDS, themes of cross-cultural relationships, violence against women and same sex marriage are explored. Though issue based and politically charged, the plays are drawn from true stories of real people facing life's challenges with humanity, courage and humor.
