Written by gay playwright Ronald Nelson, Bud is a one-man show containing nudity, performed by veteran actor Louis Solino. "In between the shadows of McCarthy America, Bud stumbles upon Jean Genet's long banned homoerotic film Un chant d amour," reads the play's blurb. "On a bright Sunday afternoon he pulls down the blinds of his three-room apartment and all his unnamed and unclaimed desires come to light within a 16 MM frame."
The live-streaming production offers a unique GLBT perspective about our community and our place the wider world, says Nelson.
Running for approximately 40 minutes, Bud will be live streamed from 8:30pm (NZ time) on Wednesday 8th and Thursday 9th of April. Sign in on the website linked below to view the production at those times. A video preview of Bud is shown below.
