Follow the journey of four gay boys in the Dallas Baptist Church. Storyteller Mark Lee Fuller tries to create a world of love and acceptance in the church and clubs of Dallas, Texas, while desperately trying to find a place to put his own pain and rage. The world Mark creates also includes two older barflies, Peanut and Odette, whose banter takes the audience from hysterical laughter to tragedy and tears. With a theme of religion clashing with sexuality, Sissies strives to find  balance and acceptance in the world of religion.

Winner:  GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding LA Theater Production, Los Angeles Critics Awards, Ovation Awards, Backstage West Garland Awards and Robby Awards. 

There will be a POST-SHOW DISCUSSION following each performance, to allow the audience time to voice their views of issues raised in the performance, and to discussion ways to create a world of acceptance, understanding and hope.
