Multi award-winning playwright Terrence McNally has an impressive career spanning six decades, and this fabulous retrospective of the genius writer covers all of it. McNally was raised in working class Texas in the 1950s – a difficult time and place to grow up gay – but he never had any qualms about who he was. In 1965, McNally wrote the first openly gay character to appear on Broadway, and later the masterpiece Love! Valor! Compassion! His plays became an inspiration to gay people in the US and beyond. This winning documentary features wonderful interviews with McNally himself, as well as Nathan Lane, Angela Lansbury, Edie Falco and more.
