Event Details

Diversity. Scandal. Mystery. Truth. The Twentieth Century Way by Tom Jacobson, a historical little-known chapter in Southern California history, returns in dramatic form from October 1 – 31 to kick off Island City Stage’s 10th Anniversary 2021-22 South Florida Season.

This gripping period drama which launched the theatre company’s award-winning run in 2012 recounts the true story of two actors who hired themselves out to the Long Beach Police Department in 1914 to entrap "social vagrants.” Thirty-one men were arrested, and the ensuing scandal led to an ordinance against “oral sodomy” in California. The play stars Clay Cartland as “Warren,” who originated the role in the Island City Stage production, and newcomer Alfonso Vieites as “Brown.”

Clay Cartland is a South Florida native and most recently performed in Shrek and Groundhog Day with Slow Burn Theatre at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. Some of his favorite performances include The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Desperate Measures, Flashdance, 1776, Peter and the Starcatcher and First Date. Clay is also a proud member of Actors Equity and a recipient of two Carbonell and four Silver Palm Awards. Clay also works as a voice-over artist and teaches improv comedy.

Alfonso Vieites is thrilled to be making his Island City Stage debut. He was last seen at The Foundry in Party! He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in theatre from Florida International University and has since continued his training with Sociedad Actoral Hispanoamericana in Doral. He’s also had the pleasure of appearing as a day player on two Telemundo shows.

Island City Stage’s 10th anniversary 2021-22 season will also feature Armature by Andrew Kramer from January 27 – February 27, 2022; Suddenly, Last Summer by Tennessee Williams from March 17 – April 17, 2022; The Mystery of Irma Vep by Charles Ludlam
From June 9 - July 10, 2022 and One In Two by Donja R. Love from August 4 – September 4, 2022.
