A wild, episodic sci-fi romp through the next 1000 years of humanity, Beyond the Beyond: The Gay FutureWorld! explores civil rights, gay history and the gay world of the future through personal stories gathered, scripted, workshopped and performed by GLBT youth, seniors and professional artists.


Forget your cares and woes! Step into a wild, plushy, sparkly and very funny sci-fi fantasy about what gay life will be like in the near and distant future. Conceived by Cornerstone Ensemble member Lynn Jeffries...come meet the first gay Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff! Witness the amazing Gaydar Detector do its detecting! Marvel at the trials and tribulations of the last homophobes on earth… and more! And, they’ll be joined by a cadre of puppets! (Contains mature content.)
