Outfest 2016: See my favorite of this year’s Boys Shorts program: ‘The Saint of Dry Creek’
Like every year, I was among those who kicked off the first Saturday of Outfest by taking in the Boys Shorts program.
There were seven this year and not a dud among them.
My favorite happens to be on YouTube so I want to share it with you in case you can’t make it to the REDCAT tomorrow to catch the encore presentation of the collection.
The sweetly wonderful The Saint of Dry Creek kicks off the program and it touched me deeply – mostly because it is a true story.
Patrick Haggerty grew up the son of a dairy farmer in rural Dry Creek, Washington, during the 1950s.
As a teenager, Pat began to understand he was gay—something he thought he was hiding well. But one day, after performing at a school assembly, Pat learned that his father could see him much more clearly than he realized.
Watch and let me know what you think.
