When Blanca invites Paul to her ranch in New Mexico for the Summer, he thinks it's for an artist's retreat, but it's also to help keep his gay bromantic college buddy Alonso, Blanca's brother, on his medication; tormented painters, sexual obsession, and crossed boundaries combine for a scorching new play.
A Zen exploration of the gap between truth and convenient fictions that employs the known facts about General Tomoyuki Yamashita and his legendary gold to illuminate the tangled love lives of four disaffected New Yorkers- a Japanese-American man with a passion for Star Trek, his Jewish girlfriend who loves to taunt her family by dating the goyim, her roommate a homo who's trying not to date straight men anymore, and his fag hag, a WASP model who's sporadically studying astrology and Buddhism.
In this Shakespeare-styled Ridiculous Fairy Tale Play, Prince Trevor trades places with his manservant Grumbelino in order to escape marriage to the evil Queen Bluebella and find his true love, Toby the Stable Boy.
Adrian and Javier are a gay couple who don’t believe in marriage, but everyone assumes they’re married; when they realize they’ve never actually opened up their “open relationship”, they decide to each go out and get laid, with hilarious and erotic results.
A five-act Shakespearean-styled play entirely in iambic pentameter, written for a cast of eight women to play all the roles, it follows the Princess Dandelion on an epic journey as she dresses as a boy to evade her rapist.
