Event Details

Dear Harvey by Patricia Loughrey is an extensively researched and beautifully constructed, this documentary-style ensemble play recounts the life and lasting impact of groundbreaking LGBT activist and politician Harvey Milk, as told by the people who knew him best. Spoken word combines with multimedia and music as an ensemble cast moves in and out of the identities of real-world figures whose lives were forever altered by Milk’s too-short career. This spirited play by CSULB Theatre Arts faculty member Patricia Loughrey reaffirms Harvey’s impact and the continued relevance of his campaign towards equality, four decades after his assassination. In a partnership with the Long Beach Parks Department, Dear Harvey will be performed in Harvey Milk Park as a commemoration of the 40th anniversary of Harvey Milk’s assassination.

Directed by Peter Howard, founding member of Cornerstone Theater Company and an innovative theater maker who focuses on using performances as a springboard for dialogue on challenging topics ranging from immigration to racial bias.
