“You dig around the basement of any gay bar and you’re going to come up with secrets. Child!”

Besties Annie and Curtis struggle to produce their queer history podcast until the discovery of a secret family journal launches their high stakes adventure to unravel mysteries of the early LGBTQ rights movement. Hopping from the Underground Railroad to Rosa Parks to Celebrity Jeopardy, this hilarious and moving story of friendship, family, and love redefines how personal the political can get.

Time is on Our Side was the recipient of two Barrymore Awards including Best New Play and was named a finalist for the Harold and Mimi Steinberg American Theatre Critics Association New Play Award. In addition to his work in the theatre, R. Eric Thomas writes a daily humor column for in which he “reads” the news. His writing has also appeared in the New York Times, W Magazine, Man Repeller, Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia Magazine and more.


About Face Theatre creates exceptional, innovative, and adventurous theatre and educational programming that advances the national dialogue on sexual and gender identity, and challenges and entertains audiences in Chicago and beyond.
