Straight is a hilarious and subversive excursion into the world of conversion therapy, where gays and lesbians are reputedly 'cured' of their homosexuality and made 'straight.' Join acclaimed writer/performer David Schmader as he plunges into the heart of this dangerous territory. Schmader, a gay man, pulls no punches with either the conversionists or the gay community in this one-man show -- attending sessions with a German psychoanalyst, going undercover at 'ex-gay' support groups, and engaging in an intensive crash course in Christian heterosexuality ... deep in the heart of Texas. Straight pulls no punches. Schmader deploys a wry honesty that spares neither Christian conversionists nor the unconverted in this uproarious take on sexual reprogramming. Blending an essayists insight with the spark of stand-up comedy, Schmader confronts difficult questions, rejects easy answers, and gets to the bottom of what it means to be 'straight.'
