“Lonely Planet” by Steve Dietz




The Provincetown Theater is proud to present ‘Lonely Planet’, a play by Steven Dietz, directed by Francis Kelly, and starring Joe MacDougall* & John Long*.

Lonely Planet tells the story of two friends, Jody and Carl, who use humor and their own sense of absurdity to navigate the turbulent world at the height of the AIDS crisis. Focusing on the lives and friendship of Jody and Carl, ‘Lonely Planet’ manages to capture the essence of an important moment in our history in an understated yet powerful theatrical event.

“Lonely Planet is written with compassion and concern; Dietz has known his unfair share of young people who died well before their time, and his sorrow clearly motivates the play.” –Chicago Reader

“To describe Lonely Planet as an “AIDS play” is accurate yet incomplete. It is really more of a story about friendship and its importance in a troubling world.”-DC Theatre Scene
