It’s 1950 and new colors are being added to the Red Scare. Two U.S. State Department employees, Bob and Norma, have been tasked with identifying “sexual deviants” within their ranks. There’s just one problem: Both Bob and Norma are gay, and have married each other’s partners as a carefully constructed cover. Inspired by the true story of the earliest stirrings of the mainstream American gay rights movement, madcap classic sitcom-style laughs give way to provocative drama as two All-American couples are forced to stare down the closet door.
Patrick Gorirossi directs the comedic sensibilities of Shamire Casselle, Ari Eckley, Gabe Fremuth, Holly Gibbs, Ebony Jackson and Nate Krimmel. Join us as Fells Point Corner Theatre shares the true story of the fight against persecution during The Lavender Scare. A fight that has still yet to be won. Based on a true story, Perfect Arrangement is sure to enthrall audiences with its absurd comedy and heartfelt characters.
