LGBTQ History Month

Swimming While Drowning at Stages Repertory Theatre

October 3 - 21, 2018
Stages Repertory Theatre

Angelo and Mila are fifteen and homeless. Angelo is a dreamer, Mila is a street-wise hustler, but when they become roommates at a shelter for LGBTQ teens, they build a fragile bond that inspires them to reach for understanding and self-acceptance. Emilio Rodriguez’s poetic coming-of- age story celebrates the healing power of hope and the beautiful mystery of being a teenager.

This event is sponsored by Stages Repertory Theatre for more information please contact their administrative office at 713.527.0220 or box office at 713.527.0123.
