INTAR presents the Off-Broadway premiere of 'Locusts Have No King,' a dark and comedic drama about two gay couples and the one simple choice that threatens to change all of their lives forever. More…
Two gay couples get together for a dinner party. They work together. They even live in the same building. And, they are closeted. But when one of them ponders his resignation, the others fear the exposure of their hidden relationships. They cannot allow this to happen. They won’t allow this to happen. So, all hell breaks loose…literally.
See it if Two couples of gay Catholic priests live it up in the Rectory. Interesting premise almost hits the mark. Bitchy religionists find guilt.
Don't see it if Some supernatural elements were symbolic but the final scene just did not work. Some of the acting was off-base. A nice, intimate space.
