Sugarless Author's New Play at CenterStage This Weekend

Check out the new work by Jim Magruder, former CenterStage dramaturg and author of Sugarless.

Dunkler-Related Disorders
Series Premiere

By CENTERSTAGE Associate Artist James Magruder
Oct 7-10, 2010
When Cary Dunkler, an AIDS activist at the height of the crisis, returns home to save his sexaholic brother from their mother's religious righteousness, he becomes embroiled in a decades--long delusion that turns the phrase "family values" on its head. Over one memorable Memorial Day weekend, the volatile Dunklers duke it out in Associate Artist James Magruder's corrosive comedy about food, sex, and intergenerational sin. (Mature themes)

James Magruder was long-time Resident Dramaturg at CENTERSTAGE and continues his affiliation as an Associate Artist. He is known to Baltimore audiences for his fresh, funny translations and adaptations of French classics--including The Triumph of Love and The Miser, as well as Triumph of Love the Broadway musical--and for his more personal writing, from plays short and long to his recent, and much-acclaimed, novel Sugarless.
