Broom Street Theater - 1119 Williamson St Madison, WI
Apr 3, 2015

In the worst days of the Depression, Bob Neal and Edgar Hellum paid ten dollars for a crumbling stone house in Mineral Point, WI. They not only restored the building--they created a new identity for their failing hometown. Based on a true story, Ten Dollar House is a new play about Wisconsin's own gay history and a humorous and touching look at a life two men spent together. Ten Dollar House was a semifinalist in Pride Films and Plays’ Great Gay Screenplay Competition. Ten Dollar House was written by Rick Kinnebrew and Martha Meyer, and is directed by John Siewert. It features the talents of Christopher Holland, Andrew Lonsdale, Vanessa Vesperman, Bob Moore, Wendy Prosise, and Donnovan Moen. The show opens March 20 and will run on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8PM through April 11 at Broom Street Theater. Tickets are $11. Reserve online at bstonline.org/reserve. There will be a short talkback after the March 21 performance.
