SOUTHERN BAPTIST SISSIES

"For God so loved the world," Mark says, as he starts to quote John 3:16. "Ironic, huh? Because this is where we learned to hate ourselves." The character in Del Shores's semiautobiographical play is talking about a homophobic Baptist church in Dallas, where he and three other gay teenagers are struggling to come of age in the eighties. In this sometimes funny, sometimes somber remembrance, Shores segues between the adolescence of his characters and who they wind up being after grappling with the conflicts between their developing personalities, their sexuality, and their faith. Brent Blakesley stars at Theatre in the Park. —Byron Woods
