Playwright Frank Anthony Polito shares his journey from blue collar Hazel Park Michigan to New York's theater scene, then back again, nearly 20 years later with a drama about his teenage years with his best friend--both discovering they are gay in the late 1980s.  

For two more weekends--through October 4th, audiences can share this remarkable show in Hazel Park at the the Slipstream Theatre Initiative's production of "B.F.s!" (link to website).

Topics include:

  • Frank's journey home
  • Writing a play (from an original novel)
  • Basing characters on real people--and merging them
  • Teenagers, friendships and drama
  • Becoming a drama coach at your alma mater
