This laugh-out-loud comedy by Georgia’s brilliant rising star playwright, Topher Payne, blows the cover off of the very serious government witch-hunt of the 1950s, led by the zealous Sen. Joseph McCarthy. Payne’s sit-com-style play spotlights the period in which McCarthy’s “Red Scare” spun off an even more sinister offspring - the “Lavender Scare” - the government search for “sexual deviants.” The comedy focuses on four gay State Department employees who struggle to keep their secrets in the closet - literally.
