The world premiere of House of Chavis by Robert Macke, produced by TOSOS (The Other Side of Silence) and directed by Mark Finley.

A man confronts his notions of masculinity and fatherhood as he decides to record a video message to his estranged son, who is competing in a reality TV show… for drag queens! In this TOSOS world premiere production, Robert Macke’s play, House of Chavis explores the struggles of acceptance and rejection between LGBTQIA+ folx and their families.

TOSOS (The Other Side of Silence) is New York City’s oldest and longest producing profes-sional LGBTQIA+ theater company. In 1974, Off-Off-Broadway veteran Doric Wilson, cabaret star Billy Blackwell and director Peter dell Valle, started the first professional gay theatre company in NYC. It was called The Other Side of Silence—TOSOS for short. In 2002, directors Mark Finley and Barry Childs and playwright Wilson resurrected TOSOS. The company has produced over 30 main stage shows and so many readings of new plays and works in pro-gress we have trouble counting them all.
