Well, gentle Calgary Gay History Project readers, the play we have been greatly anticipating opens tonight. There have been many interesting and thoughtful preview pieces about the play, and its author, Natalie Meisner.

The CBC had Natalie on The Homestretch, and also wrote an article about the play.

Just one week to go until the world premiere of Legislating Love, Natalie Meisner’s play about the life and trials of Everett Klippert, produced by Sage Theatre. We are so excited!
The plot: Everett Klippert was the last person to be tried, convicted, and jailed for homosexuality in Canada. Maxine, a young historian, discovers Everett’s case. She becomes consumed with finding out who he really was, past the headlines. This is the story of the struggle to define Klippert, beyond what history wants and needs him to be.
