Acme Theatre Presents: Dear Harvey

July 23, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Join us an intimate retelling of the life and times of civil rights icon Harvey Milk.  Written by Patricia Loughrey, Dear Harvey is a documentary-style play composed of interviews, newspaper articles, and other transcripts. Using photos, video, movement and music, an ensemble of fourteen actors will bring the reflections of Harvey’s friends and colleagues to life.

More than forty years after he was assassinated, Milk continues to inspire millions globally. He became the first openly gay elected official in the United States when he was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1977. He encouraged lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) citizens to live their lives openly and to achieve social equality. In the decades since Harvey called the LGBT+ community out into the streets, and into the voting booth, how far have we come in our struggle for equity? And where is that struggle leading us now?
