Breakthrough Workshop Theatre presents
The Stories of DEAR HARVEY
A Documentary by Ira Bauer-Spector
Based on the play Dear Harvey
Written by Patricia Loughrey
Music by Thomas Hodges
The Stories of DEAR HARVEY is a documentary-style video that interweaves stories from the play Dear Harvey, with stories from the creators and the artists who have been changed through their work on the play for over a decade. Inspired by and expanding on the play’s original mission to spread Harvey Milk’s message of love and hope, this project also reflects on the legacy of Dan Kirsch, who originally commissioned and produced the play at Diversionary Theatre in 2009; and is told through the unique perspective of Breakthrough Workshop Theatre, a San Diego-based educational nonprofit which has presented an annual reading of Dear Harvey since BWT was founded in 2013.
Presented exclusively with three free, live digital screenings, each will feature a different live follow-up experience, and each will serve as a benefit for a different cause: BWT, San Diego Pride, and the Dan Kirsch Theater Arts Grant.
