Gay Camp

Synopsis:
In the wake of a recent rash of gay teen suicides, states reexamining their marriage laws, and church protests at the funerals of gay members of the military, Gay Camp tackles these issues head on - with humor. With three actors playing a dozen different zany characters, Gay Camp follows the stories of several young campers at a gay reform camp. they have been sent away by their parents to be "fixed." Instead, they learn how to love - themselves and one another. Co-authors Philip Mutz and Susan-Kate Heaney (who also star in the show) do not leave any comedy stone unturned. While successfully dissecting stereotypes and sending a powerful message about tolerance and acceptance, Mutz and Heaney still find a way to inject every moment with humor. Start with a deliciously evil headmaster and a closeted lesbian guidance counselor, throw in a few electrified fences, disco balls, white girls rapping, boy-boy love, girl-girl love, gay Twister, Sarah Palin, slow-motion fantasies, whips, handcuffs, flannel, and more innuendos than you can shake a dildo at, and you've got Gay Camp. Gay Camp is fast, funny, and not pulling its punches as it takes on the anti-gay morons in America.
