Rory Max Kaplan and Tim McGarrigal star as forbidden lovers in the world premiere of Nothing But Trash, Andy Halliday's off-off-Broadway satire of 1950s teen-angst films and gay pulp fiction.
"What happens when two beautiful teenage boys meet under the hot summer sun? Nothing good," the press notes read. "In Nothing But Trash, the year is 1958 and Tab and Troy are on the fast track to madness when their innocent love is destroyed by lies. Wrongly accused of a heinous crime, the boys must escape the horror of juvenile hall, or risk losing their sanity. And their lives!"
"Ultimately, this story is about two innocent teenage boys who must hide their love," says Halliday, an alum of Charles Busch's legendary Theatre-in-Limbo company.
Directed by G.R. Johnson, the cast also includes features Tim Burke, Andrew Glaszek, John Kevin Jones, David Errigo, Jr., Jeffrey Vause, Steven Wenslawski, and Halliday in drag.
Nothing But Trash runs through March 23 at New York's Theater for the New City. For tickets and more information, visit the show's website.
