Reviews of "Dex & Abby" at Pride Films and Plays:
Chicago Sun Times: “Dex & Abby stars learn the tricks to playing pups.”

Chicago On Stage: “If you love pets, you really owe it to yourself to see Dex & Abby”
Chicago Theatre Review: "Happiness is a Warm Puppy". "For anyone who has ever been loved or owned by a dog, this new play...is a must see."

 

…last and always

By Allan Baker

On 9/11 a gay couple…one in the World Trade Center and one at their home in the city…must say goodbye. Sometimes love can take you to a safe place when nothing else can.

Chosen from over 800 submissions, Allan’s was one of 15 ten-minute plays selected to be performed during the festival in Healdsburg, CA. This will be the 8th production of this powerful, moving 9/11 play. First produced in New York City as part of the 2009 Pride Festival, it was again produced in NYC in 2011. Later productions were Buffalo, NY and Livingston, MT in 2012; the Theatre Dept. of the University of Guam in 2013; Santa Cruz, CA and Clearwater, FL in 2014. In 2012, …last and always was a finalist for the National Award for Short Playwriting of the City Theatre of Miami.
