The Taint of Equality ~or~ I Want Your Sex

Benefiting: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center
Produced by Cross-Eyed Bear Productions
Written/Directed by Duncan Pflaster

“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. The play is an entertaining send-up of modern Gay life and relationships, that tackles drug use, Dan Savage, racism, showtunes, porn, Grindr, public sex, and much much more. Warning: The show contains full-frontal nudity and is most definitely NOT for children.

The production stars a large cast of 13 men: Roberto Alexander, Juan Carlos Diaz*, Joe Fanelli (Winner, Best Featured Actor Spotlight On Award for Pflaster’s “Eternity: Time Without End”), Mark-Eugene Garcia, Colin Godwin, Derrick Bryant Marshall, Shawn McLaughlin, Alan McNaney*, Rehmat Qadir, Jon Rentler, Marvin Riggins, Jr.*, Adam Samtur, and David T. Zimmerman
