Description

Locusts is a new play exploring lived experience of gay conversion therapy within an evangelical church. Out of the blue, Stephen is contacted by Pete – the pastor of the church he attended as a young man in the late 1980s. Back then, Pete taught that there was no such thing as a gay Christian and prayed that God would make Stephen straight – something Pete believes worked. Now he wants the same for his daughter – and he wants Stephen to help.
