Equality Forum presents
Pick Up Performance Co(s) production of
217 Boxes of Dr. Henry Anonymous
a play written and directed by
 Obie-Award winner Ain Gordon 

In conjunction with the 2018 Annual Meeting of the American Psychiatric Association, we honor the 45th anniversary of the declassification of homosexuality as a mental illness with a play about the man who helped end lobotomies, chemical castration, electric shock therapy and mental institutionalization and whose remarkable courage transformed the LGBT civil rights movement. Nightly talkbacks follow each performance.
