Event Notes

× For the Young Gay, the Un-Gay and the Jaded Queen in All of Us

On stage for a limited run of four performances, Massey Theatre’s current artist in residence, Allan Morgan, will share his one person show. Written by Morgan and directed by Mindy Parfitt, the experience follows his path from 1968 forward, chronicling his life as he begins to understand and accept his sexuality and recalls the connections and inner conflicts between his life and the Gay Pride movement. It is the story of one person’s journey though homophobia – both internalized and societal – toward the light of acceptance and love.

“I grew up as a gay person in a time when it was considered a diagnosed mental illness, and nothing to be proud of”, stated Morgan. “My generation was forged in that miasma. But we have walked/protested/rallied forward to a time of prime ministers walking beside us in Pride parades. During my lifetime Gay Pride has morphed from an oxymoron to a bumper sticker.” Allan shares his incredible story up-close and personal in a unique staging where you will be seated on the Massey stage - creating an informal storytelling presentation complete with cookies served with love.

This production marks the beginning of Massey Theatre’s Under the Rainbow 2019/2020 program, a collection of programs and events aimed at building community through art and celebration. Visit for details on the many programs ahead.
