Gross Indecency… follows the legendary author, poet and playwright and the trials for his “crime” of homosexuality. Earlier in 2015, Kaufman and Tectonic Theater Project were working with the Moscow New Drama Theatre and the U.S. State Department to produce a revival of the play in Moscow. In the middle of pre-production, the Kremlin stopped the revival because of the play’s LGBTQ content. In response to the cancellation, Kaufman and Tectonic Theater Project decided to produce a benefit reading in NYC to bring attention to the suppression of the rights of the LGBTQ community in Russia.All funds raised will benefit Tectonic Theater Project and the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission.
