Malicious Animal Magnetism

by Dipika Guha and Jeremy Cohen
Directed by Jeremy Cohen

7 p.m.

The Rueff at The Strand Theater

In 1973, amid men in suits, men weeping, and one psychiatrist in a Nixon mask, ten-year-old Peter witnesses a landmark moment in gay rights and reaches out to grab the hand of Oakland boy Deshawn. Co-commissioned with Z Space, Malicious Animal Magnetism is an epic story about love, queerness, and what we can't help looking at.
