Synopsis

Meet Ben. Ben is a 26-year-old investment banker. Ben likes beer, sports and Emily … and Chris. Straight is a provocative new play that deals with fidelity, sexuality and identity in "post-equality" America. Funny, sad, sexy and surprising, this three-character drama takes a hard look at the moral complex of a generation that prides itself on the pretense of acceptance.

Media Reviews

"A candid, sex-filled bromance." -Gay City News

"A charged piece that showcases why labels still matter, even in 2016." -Out Magazine

"A fun, smart take on modern love." -Forbes

"A revolution of expectations. One's own. One's friends'. And society's." -The Huffington Post

"A smart, bracing production brimming with clever wisecracks [and] some thought-provoking observations on sexual identity." -The New York Times

"A tender exploration of the pros and cons of being bisexual in a contemporary society that often insists you can only be one or the other." -The Observer

"At its heart, Straight really isn't about what we are or even what we want to be. After all, no one can choose what they are. All we can choose is what we do about it, how we act once we know." -The Huffington Post

"Savvy, enthralling … a first-rate comic drama … a complex love story of sorts, fraught with lust and duplicity." -Gay City News

"An unexpectedly potent spin on what many might consider (perhaps rightly) a superannuated genre." -Talkin' Broadway

"Straight smacks us in the head and the heart." -Talkin' Broadway
