Being both black and queer isn't the easiest thing in the world (to say the least), but Robert O'Hara shows that there can still be a lighter side to the struggle with his subversive semi-biographical comedy BootyCandy. It's the story of Sutter, a young gay black man on an outrageous journey that takes him from his childhood home through churches, dive bars, motel rooms and even nursing homes. O'Hara weaves together scenes, sermons, sketches and daring meta-theatrics to create a shockingly funny look at the experience of being a homosexual in the black community. This uproarious satire, which New York magazine called "insanely entertaining and completely engaging," veers from absurdity to naturalism as Sutter comes to terms with his sexuality. Don't miss BootyCandy at Chicago's Windy City Playhouse.
