217 Boxes Of Dr. Henry Anonymous

1972: Dr John Fryer dons an oversize tuxedo & rubber joke shop mask to become Dr. Henry Anonymous and confront the American Psychiatric Association with these words: 

“I am a homosexual, I am a psychiatrist.” 

Dr Anonymous propelled psychiatry to declassify homosexuality as a mental illness - but who was Dr Fryer behind that mask?  Sourcing Fryer’s 217-box archive housed at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, this play asks three figures from his life to draw a portrait of the man they shared.
