About Party, by David Dillon: A group of seven gay friends get together for a kiki in mid-1990s Manhattan. The evening is full of campy comebacks, Broadway references, and naughty party games. As the evening progresses, the guys start to play a version of "Truth or Dare" in which they must answer intimate questions and act out sexual fantasies, all the while shedding an article of clothing with each round until they all end up naked. The dialog is hilarious but also turns poignant as it touches gently on darker themes, including a painful coming out, unrequited love, and the loss of friends in the AIDS epidemic unfolding around them.
The play contains male nudity, strong language, and sexual content. The WildFyre Society last presented this five years ago at Empire Stage under different direction. In this production at The Foundry, Ronnie Larsen is producer and director. For additional insights, see Ronnie Larsen Presents.
Party is an exercise in group affirmation fitted to a 'Friends'-like structure. And the continual waves of laughter and applause that greet its on-stage antics are proof of its success. — Bay Windows, Boston
... non-stop laughs from beginning to end ... a new vision of gays that is life-affirming and unapologetic. Besides being warm and witty, with a wonderful celebration of life quality to it, Party is absolutely hysterical — Chicago River North News
