About The Convert

Alix and Marcus have been brought to The Facility to be “corrected”. If their condition is cured they may leave and return to the society. But if they fail, they will be sent to the Other Place, away from their friends and family forever. Failure is not an option, but in this confounding institution, where they only have each other, the greatest threat to their success is their own love. Ben Kavanagh’s imaginative and timely play pitches nightmarish forces against our unerasable, shining humanity. It was first seen in a sell-out run as part of Above The Stag’s CONTACT festival and now receives a full production, directed by Gene David Kirk. There will be a post show Q&A each Friday. Trigger warning: The Convert includes depictions of conversion therapy and abuse.
