A staged reading of Jonathan Wilson’s hit play “Kilt”!

About Kilt:
Tom is a dancer at a strip club who performs in his grandfather’s kilt. Is this just his gimmick of part of a larger queer legacy? There will be no skirting the issue in this time jumping comedy.

Kilt was first produced at the Tarragon Theatre 20 years ago and has had productions off-Broadway as well as across Canada, the U.K. and the U.S.
We’re Funny That Way is proud to present Kilt in celebration of it’s 20th anniversary.
“Deeply silly and deeply moving. A great combination”
–  Martin DIll, New York at Night
“… lots of laughs and a great thumping heart. Up with Kilt!”
–   Vit Wagner, The Toronto Star
“…Kilt says volumes about love and sex and treasuring connections when and where you find them. Witty and provocative”
 –  John Colbourne, The Toronto Sun
“…full of hilarious and touching twists and turns. It also blends a search for family roots with a deliciously non-apologetic take on being queer”.
 – Mira Friedlander, Variety 
“Bawdy and poetic. A deft portrayal of the strange animals we humans are…such heart and humour!”         
– Beth Trask, Eye on Theatre NY
