DEAR HARVEY - A Play About Harvey Milk


Marking the 35th anniversary of his assassination, as told by the people who knew him best, the San Francisco Premiere of DEAR HARVEY is the recounting of the life and the lasting impact of groundbreaking queer activist and politician Harvey Milk.

Drawn from over thirty interviews conducted by Playwright Patricia Loughrey, DEAR HARVEY recounts the achievements and vision of the first openly gay man elected to a major public office in the United States. A State Senator, an international gay rights activist, a drag queen, a nineteen-year-old composer...the play weaves these voices and more with the personal and political writings of Harvey Milk to paint a stunning theatrical portrait of a leader, and a vision for equality.

Supported by photos from Milk’s friends and family, and music written by composer Thomas Hodges, DEAR HARVEY celebrates the stories not found in history books: the stories of a love that reached beyond fear and captivated a generation.
