Always striving to grow artistically, we took new – and very divergent – paths for our next shows. Screaming Queens, our first Halloween offering, brought an LGBT perspective to classic horror subjects from haunted houses to the Zombie Apocalypse. San Francisco, Here I Come! was our most challenging production to date. Whereas LCTC’s earlier shows had combined the best of the submissions received from writers in the Bay Area and beyond, SFHIC was the first LCTC production to be conceived and written in-house by our excellent and growing group of affiliated playwrights. Set in a single San Francisco apartment, SFHIC gave the audience six stories of LGBT experience from a noir-ish-1949 to a tech-crazed 2018 and explored the complicated relationship our community has with the City by the Bay. Critics deemed it “important” and a clear indication that LCTC was maturing in its writing, acting and production. Audiences laughed and cried and raved about the experience.
