* Canadian-born ADAM BOCK is an openly gay Obie-award-winning playwright 
who's clearly benefited from an activist upbringing.   He writes dialogue that 
sounds like real people -- like the out-of-the-mainstream characters he enjoys 
putting on stage.   He says he's not grinding an obvious axe -- he prefers to 
challenge audiences to think for themselves.   His latest play, "The Shaker 
Chair," running through January 27th at the San Francisco Bay area's Encore 
Theatre Company, explores themes of personal change and environmental justice.   
"This Way Out" correspondent BRYAN GOEBEL sits down with Adam Bock for a 
wide-ranging and entertaining conversation about his ACT UP activism and the women who 
inspired it, his process as a writer, and his identity as a gay playwright 
(concludes next week).
