Synopsis

SICK

Dahn Hiuni

Published by Cyberpress

7 Male 1 Female

A full-length dramedy, SICK tells the story of the early 1970s struggle to remove homosexuality from the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic & Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM.

Based in part on the historical record, the play follows Ron Gold, an activist and aversion therapy survivor, whose growing resolve to rid the manual of its damning diagnosis puts him on a collision course with the psychiatric establishment

With humor, poignancy, early 70s music, and the ghost of Freud himself, SICK recounts a pivotal moment in gay history, affirming the power of the individual in the struggle for equality
