50 STATES > Oklahoma

50 STATES: OKLAHOMA centers on Lynn Riggs, a gay Cherokee playwright, celebrated in his time and now largely forgotten. His most famous play “Green Grow the Lilacs”, a beautiful character study of Indian Territory on the brink of statehood, was adapted by Rogers and Hammerstein into “OKLAHOMA!” While “Green Grow the Lilacs” contains few hints of homoeroticism, much of Riggs’s other work contains overt queer themes.
