A new version of the group, Proud Theater Beyond, started in Madison May of 2014 and targets young adults between the ages of 18 and 24, an underserved part of the LGBTQI and allied community.

The Lion in Winter

By James Goldman

Directed by Scott Albert Bennett

It is Christmas in England AD 1183, and the King of France, Philip II Augustus, is at the court of Henry II. Henry has let his wife Eleanor out of prison, but only for the holidays, and with the fate of Henry's empire at stake, everybody engages in their own brand of deception and treachery to stake their claim. A delightful blend of both the comedic and the dramatic, we follow the personal and political conflicts of King Henry II, his wife Eleanor of Aquitaine, their three surviving sons Richard, Geoffrey, and John, and Philip's half-sister Alais, betrothed to Richard at age eight, but now Henry's mistress. As Eleanor says, "Every family has its ups and downs." and this royal family is no exception.

Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde

By Moisés Kaufman

Directed by Steve Noll

London: 1895: Oscar Wilde was the toast of Victorian high society. His plays and writings were scandalous, outrageous, daring and incredibly popular. His fame was immense. His fortunes: huge. So much that he believed his openly gay relationship with the son of a famous politician couldn't be touched. Some historians have called Wilde the "first gay man" for being so brash. But the laws of the times were clear: Gross Indecency (as his sexual orientation was then termed) was a felony. And it would take three trials for the simple truth to be heard. "The truth is rarely pure, and never simple."
