That Damn Horse: The Stories of Gay Rodeo
November 2 | 7 p.m. |
Reservations requiredDrawn from over 60 interviews in the Gay Rodeo Oral History Project, (housed in the Autry archives) That Damn Horse weaves together the many voices who represent the diversity of gay rodeo, from old timers to newcomers and across gender and sexual identities. By bringing together imagination and fact through verbatim theater, the playwrights hope to combine gay rodeoers' broader individual experiences to capture a message about joy, survival and family.
Performance followed by a conversation with Roger Bergmann, former president of the International Gay Rodeo Association, and Voices of Gay Rodeo Oral History Project team members Rebecca Scofield and Court Fund.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for audiences to visit the galleries and purchase food at Trail Grill.
Written by Rebecca Scofield, Robert Caisley and Court Fund
Directed by James Still
Produced in partnership with the University of Idaho
