Andy Sandberg will direct the work co-authored by Scott Elmegreen and Drew Fornarola.

The cast will feature Michael Arden (Big River; The Times They Are A-Changin’; “Kings”) as Ben, Aya Cash (The Other Place; From Up Here) as Emily and Paul Iacono (“The Hard Times of RJ Berger”; Fame) as Chris.

In Straight, press notes state, "young investment banker Ben meets college sophomore Chris, but Ben is already in a relationship with graduate student Emily. Such is life for three young Bostonians living in a society that claims to be free of stereotypes. Through humor and a complicated love triangle, Straight deals with themes of sexuality and identity, examining these ideas in a unique and interesting new light. Funny, sad, sexy, and surprising, this simple three-character drama meditates on fidelity, identity, and the moral complex of a Facebook generation that prides itself on the pretense of tolerance."
