Event Description:

Tectonic Theater Project present 

A benefit reading of:

Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde

Monday, October 5, 2015 at 7:00pm

“Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde,” is a dramatization of court transcripts from the 1895 prosecutions of Wilde, who was accused of sexual relations with men. Michael Emerson (“Lost,” “Person of Interest”) will play Wilde at the reading on Oct. 5, at the Gerald W. Lynch Theater. Others in the cast include Sally Field, Michael C. Hall, David Hyde Pierce, Judith Light, Tony Kushner and Jonathan Groff.

Mr. Kaufman, the artistic director of the Tectonic Theater Project, was to direct a company of Russian actors at the Moscow-based New Drama Theater in October before politics intruded. Instead, he will direct the benefit reading, with the proceeds to go to the Tectonic Theater Project and the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission. Tickets range from $50 to $1,000.

Mr. Kaufman, in a statement, called Russia’s treatment of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people “an abomination.” “The Kremlin’s refusal to allow ‘Gross Indecency’ to be performed in Moscow is but the tip of the iceberg,” he said. “By doing this benefit reading we hope to bring attention to our brothers and sisters in that country and in all the other countries where atrocities are being committed.”
