The Coming Out Play Festival 

When: Fri., Oct. 19, 7 p.m. and Sat., Oct. 20, 4:30 & 8 p.m. 2018
Price: $15-$20
There is no road map for coming out to your friends and parents, because every person and situation is different. Telling people who you really are can be traumatic, joyous or a bit of a letdown — anything can happen. The Q Collective, a new local theater company, makes its debut with a showcase of short plays about the experience. The Coming Out Play Festival features six fifteen-minute plays, with subjects including two friends, soon to be separated by college, who wonder if their friendship will survive ("Where the Fireworks Come From"); a young woman who has to explain to her mother why she's called off her wedding ("Something Old"); and the fallout from one man's failed attempt to come out during his mother's Christmas Eve party ("Baby Black Jesus: Part Four"). All six plays are performed at 7 p.m. Friday and 4:30 and 8 p.m. Saturday (October 19 and 20) at the Monocle (4510 Manchester Avenue; Tickets are $15 to $20.
