The plays that comprise the evenings follow:

White Marriage by Jeffery Hatcher, in which a wife and husband discuss his “gay” sense of humor
London Mosquitoes by Moisés Kaufmann - a widower tries to make sense of the loss of his long-time lover
This Marriage Is Saved by Joe Keenan, a satiric vignette in which a disgraced evangelist and his wife insist that his fling with a male prostitute has strengthened their marriage.
Strange Fruit by Neil LaBute - the story of two men in love whose plans to get married “the old-fashioned way” are stymied when reality rears its ugly head
This Flight Tonight by Wendy MacLeod - Is there any hope for happiness when a lesbian marriage begins in IOWA?
Outlaw Wedding, written and performed by Kathy Najimi – an hilarious and affectionate recounting of a same-sex "outlaw" wedding by "Aunt Maddie"
Pablo and Andrew at the Altar of Words by José Rivera – two men use their marriage vows to “say the things we never really say”
The Gay Agenda by Paul Rudnick - a sadly hilarious plea for understanding by an Ohio homemaker and member of Focus on the Family
On Facebook by Doug Wright, adapted from an actual Facebook thread that chronicles one long fight among friends on the issue of gay marriage.

Audience talkbacks follow each performance.
