It's CAMP. It's SATIRE. It's a CAMP SATIRE.
Ex-Gays: Not a Str8 Remount is set in fictional Camp Str8-N-Arrow, and follows Pastor Brian and the rest of the camp staff as they help campers turn off their homosexual feelings and turn on their love of the heterosexual life. Through the lens of satire, Ex-Gays takes a humorous and thoughtful look at the relationship between sexuality and religion in contemporary American society.
Critic Adam Whisner said of the original 2011 production, “The show was wonderful. Hilarious, campy, silly, full of improv and scripted moments, but also packed a punch, revealing the devastating emotional consequences of this kind of thinking and the damage it can do to people who are duped by misguided religious zealotry. It's a solid, well-produced and executed piece of sociopolitical art. I absolutely recommend it.”
