Playwright Julie Jensen on creating LGBTQ work with Plan-B

Julie Jensen’s SHE WAS MY BROTHER opened Plan-B’s 2010/11, 20th anniversary season.  Her CHRISTMAS WITH MISFITS receives its world premiere this December as part of Plan-B’s 2014/15 season.  She shares her thoughts about being a gay playwright as part of Give OUT Day.

I’ve been a playwright for a million years.  Had productions all over the world.  Most of those theatres didn’t know I was gay, didn’t want to know.  Lately some theatres have known, but have chosen not to say anything about it.  At Plan-B, however, I get credit for being gay, encouraged to write about gay subjects, and taken seriously for both.  Thank you, Plan-B.  I’m happy to be associated with you.
