Dear Henry...When Love Blows Up

A One Man Show Written & Directed By Arthur Wooten

Starring Luke Doyle

In 2008 & 2009, NYC author and playwright Arthur Wooten was the humorist for the London based Magazine reFRESH. The column revolved around a man writing letters to his boyfriend Henry regaling readers in numerous crazy shenanigans (both sexual and non) that the two have gotten into during their relationship. reFRESH readers fell in love with Arthur and couldn't wait for the next installment of DEAR HENRY. Wooten became the Carrie Bradshaw of London with Brits (both gay and straight) waiting to see what the two would get into next.

Now that column has become the jumping off point for this one man show. While reexamining his colorful yet complicated relationship with his on again/off again lover Henry, Clark Compton Lowell III makes the best discovery anyone can make. He finds...himself.

​ASD Media & Entertainment is pleased to be a part of the development of this charming, funny, slightly risqué and ultimately moving piece of theater.

Played for three performances in 2015 at The Duplex.
