In Lance Crowfoot-Suede's play, Tom and David inherit a family homestead in the Catskills. Not only are Tom and David gay, but one is Christian and one Jewish and the house is in an Orthodox Jewish community. Furthermore, the couple plans to get married. That's enough ammunition for three plays.

Wendell Laurent plays Tom to Matthew Wexler's David. Susan Wallack is Sheila, David's mother. Frank Pisco, artistic director and co-founder (with Laurent) of Reckless, directs. Wexler, Laurent and Pisco are all veterans of Off-Off-Broadway's Expanded Arts. Crowfoot-Suede's plays have been performed at Circle Rep, Dixon Place, and the Barrow Group.

A chuppah is the traditional Jewish wedding canopy. For information, call (212) 229-8276.
