Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays

Tuesday, December 9, 2014
7:30 p.m.
Club Cafe, 209 Columbus Avenue

The Happy Medium Theatre is producing a one-night-only, free staged reading of Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays on Tuesday, December 9at 7:30pm in the Moonshine Room of Club Café, 209 Columbus Avenue, Boston.  The performers will be Kendall Aiguier, Michael Amaral, Brian M. Balduzzi, Katie Drexel, Matt Fagerberg, Nicole Howard, Kim Klasner, and Zach Winston

Saying two simple words might be the biggest challenge of your life.  But what if the battle started before saying "I do," and continued long after the ceremony?  In Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays, prolific playwrights Moisés Kaufman (The Laramie Project), Paul Rudnick (Jeffrey), and Neil LaBute (The Shape of Things), among others, offer their own unique takes on the issues of equality, the universality of love, and the challenges and humor of living with someone for a lifetime.  These short plays form an evening of theatre ripe for discussion, following the current legislation and litigation across the United States revolving around marriage equality.

A panel discussion will follow the staged reading, led by:
  • Attorney Janson Wu, Executive Director of Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders (GLAD)
  • Professor Katharine B. Silbaugh, Professor of Law at Boston University School of Law
  • Mal Malme, Co-Founder of Queer Soup Theatre & Performer
