StoryFest 2023 Presents: A Staged Reading of ‘Gentle Hacksaw’ by Eric LaRocca

October 21, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT


From Eric LaRocca, the award-winning author of Things Have Gotten Worse Since We Last Spoke, comes a startling new drama of religion, identity, and violence:

Two high-profile gay men become embroiled in a verbal cat-and-mouse game of utter cruelty when an unpleasant bargain goes awry. As social graces are discarded and basic human decency is abandoned, both men discover shocking truths about themselves and one another that will forever transform them.

Join us the Saturday evening of StoryFest for an exclusive staged reading of Gentle Hacksaw!

Tickets are $20 and can be purchased here.

The performance starts at 8 pm, followed by a talk-back with the playwright and cast moderated by New York Times best-selling author Clay Mcleod Chapman.

Doors open at 7 pm for a reception, where guests can mix and mingle with StoryFest authors while enjoying small bites and a cash bar.
