The following description comes from the event organizer.

The fourth of our OUTwright Theatre Festival Reading series, "The Usual Unusual" by MJ Halberstadt is about community, growth, and change in the face of a changing world. 

The Usual Unusual is a scrappy and quaint bookstore where Boston’s LGBTQ+ community has gathered to shop, organize, and flirt since the 70’s... but it's 2017 and times have changed. Penn, the charismatic founder, announces his intention to close the store—sending neurotic bookseller Charlie on a desperate campaign to convince the store's fractured community that a shared space is not only possible—but vital to queer progress.

Join us at the Black Box Theatre at Reed College's Performing Arts Building throughout May and June for our OUTwright readings, workshops and feature production, "Blonde on a Bum Trip" by Mikki Gillette. Learn more at
