Presented by the folks who brought last year’s “Hell” theater festival to Williamsburg, “The Moral Values Festival” kicks off at The Brick Theater on June 3.

The festival will stage 28 plays through July 3 with themes that touch on the hot-button topics of sexuality, politics and religion. Among the works to be staged are (pictured) “Freak Out under the Apple Tree: (Some of) The Best of Tom X. Chao” (June 3-5), a selection of the comedian’s short comedies.

Brick Theater co-founder Michael Gardner dryly explained the inspiration for this massive exploration of morality. “We were inspired by the focus of the 2004 elections on morality,” said Gardner. “If moral values can elect the leadership of the country, then maybe they’re equal to the task of programming our summer festival. Of course, we can’t speak to the effect this will have on our theater’s foreign policy initiatives.”

The Brick Theater is located at 575 Metropolitan Ave. between Union Avenue and Lorimer Street. For a complete schedule of shows, log onto Tickets are $10 for each show. Log onto or call (212) 868-4444.
