Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays
THE STORIES: 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.
“CEREMONY puts a human face on a hot-button issue and delivers laughter and tears rather than propaganda.” —Backstage. “All you have to do is listen, shed an occasional tear and laugh a lot. There is something for everybody…STANDING ON CEREMONY holds a magnifying glass to the highs and lows, joys and fears, courage and silliness, of people bucking trends and making history. It’s a fine evening, heartily recommended.” —NY Observer. “A feel-good show celebrating gay marriage. The unifying theme of same-sex marriage gives this collection its strong identity. The individual plays don’t share the same perspective or speak in the same voice. Which keeps things interesting.” —Variety.
