Savage Umbrella invites you to lend your voice to the new play making process. After the presentation, you'll have the chance to offer your feedback and help shape the future of VELVET SWING.
Inspired by the notorious tale of Evelyn Nesbit, the original 19th Century supermodel and leading lady of the “Crime of The Century,” Velvet Swing focuses on truth and testimony, choice and circumstance, and the origin of the American Woman.

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. 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.”
