Recurring Event Event Series: Marcus; or The Secret of Sweet

Marcus; or The Secret of Sweet

May 13 at 7:30 pm

Marcus; or The Secret of Sweet — A tale of a 16-year-old boy’s search for sexual and personal identity, May 12–15, Kalamazoo College’s Balch Playhouse, 129 Thompson St., kzoo.edu/festivalplayhouse.

Marcus is sixteen and “sweet.” Days before Hurricane Katrina strikes the projects of Louisiana, the currents of his life converge, overflowing into his close-knit community and launching the search for his sexual and personal identity in a cultural landscape infused with mysterious family creeds. The provocative, poignant, and fiercely humorous coming-of-age story of a young gay man in the South, Marcus is the stirring conclusion of The Brother/Sister Plays.
