Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays
Thursday, October 15, 7:30 p.m.

By: Mo Gaffney
Two little words, and suddenly your whole world changes. An A-list lineup of writers offers unique takes on the moments before, during, and after “I do.” Witty, warm, and occasionally wacky, these plays are vows to the blessings of equality, the universal challenges of relationships, and the often hilarious power of love.

Live Zoom performance (Virtual audience only. A Zoom link will be provided with purchase of a ticket. The link to join the performance will be emailed to all ticket holders that evening, approximately 1 hour before curtain.)

ROE
Sunday, November 1, 7:30 p.m.

By: Lisa Loomer
Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 case that legalized abortion, is still fiercely debated over forty years later. In this incisive play, acclaimed writer Lisa Loomer cuts through the headlines and rhetoric to reveal the divergent personal journeys of lawyer Sarah Weddington and plaintiff Norma McCorvey ("Jane Roe") in the years following the fateful decision. In turns shocking, humorous, and poignant, ROE reflects the polarization in America today while illuminating the heart and passion each side has for its cause.

Live Zoom performance (Virtual audience only. A Zoom link will be provided with purchase of a ticket. The link to join the performance will be emailed to all ticket holders that evening, approximately 1 hour before curtain.)

Six Years Old
Sunday, December 6, 7:30 p.m.

By: Daphne Silbiger
Adalaide is six years old, and she knows a few things: Her stupid babysitter Kim is stupid, her younger brother Dewey is a naked mole rat, and she does NOT like being treated like a girl. Though Kim takes Adalaide’s frustrations seriously and tries to offer support, Adalaide’s family and peers discourage her, leaving her to seek out dangerous measures in order to transform into who she was born to be (her hero, Han Solo). SIX YEARS OLD is a comic and poignant play reflecting back on the wild fantasies and serious desires of queer childhood.
