Foundry playwright R. Eric Thomas‘ new play Time is On Our Side is premiering at Simpatico Theatre Company, from June 3-26. Here’s the description from Simpatico:
Annie loves the past. Curtis lives for the future. Together they host The Schuylkill River Project, Philly’s hottest history podcast… at least among its dozen listeners. When an unearthed artifact reveals a buried story, the political suddenly gets personal for our queer co-hosts. Bouncing from the Underground Railroad to the LGBT+ rights movement to pop culture futurity, playwright R. Eric Thomas exquisitely matches humor with heart in Time Is On Our Side, delivering a gleeful mystery that celebrates the intersection of our city’s past, present, and future.
