Skanks Documents a Community Drag Musical in Birmingham, Alabama

Even in the most conservative areas, theater provides a home for the misfits, the oddballs, the outcasts and the rebels. In his new documentary, Skanks, David McMahon follows a group of performers as they prepare to perform Billy Ray Brewton's raunchy drag musical Skanks in a One Horse Town, in Birmingham, Alabama. Skanks plays tonight at the DocuWest International Film Festival; to learn more about the production, we spoke with David McMahon.
