The Velocity of Gary (Not His Real Name)

by James Still

Directed by Derek Baxter

A story, a confession, a revelation—this play takes place in the past, in the present, and in the infinity of Gary's mind. Armed with his theme ("anything can happen") and a pair of leopard-print underwear Gary dreams about kissing somebody, but along the way finds himself in New York addicted to phone sex and attending memorial services of strangers.

Through his surprising friendships with a man named Valentino and a woman named Mary Carmen that Gary discovers his greatest poetry, humor, pain, and hope.

One critic wrote, "James Still's powerfully moving narrative is about a young hustler learning too much too fast, but still naive and romantic and in love with hope."


 Contains adult situations, adult language, and nudity.
