Set in 1860 colonial Victoria, the play tells the real life story of John Butt, an openly gay man, who is acquitted of sodomy. The play tells the un-sung story of Victoria’s unwitting pioneer for gay rights when a trial jury, including First Nations, Chinese businessman and other Victoria leaders, embarks on a moral adventure that leads to their imprisonment. They choose a night in jail over condemning a man for loving another man. This true story shows Victoria’s early signs of tolerance, humanity and acceptance.
