Description

The story follows a week in the lives of an over-sexed trust fund baby (Kai Morrison), his sci-fi geek boyfriend (Brian Martin), a bi-sexual debutante (Kirsten Broadbear), a famous writer (Xanadu Bruggers) and her small-business owning, small-town dwelling ex (Ryan Hebert). Add to the mix an East Bay couple (Megan Briggs and Ben Kruer) trying to get through their first year as new parents, one man skipping out on his boyfriend (John Caldon) and another looking to score one (Christopher Struett) and the world’s wisest roommate (Kira Shaw). The result is a sleek ninety-minute comedy — a soap opera mixed with a Chekhov play, mixed with actual life.

Written and directed by Stuart Bousel, this stylish piece of theatrical fluff is pretty much an exercise in drama as therapy, in which actual experiences are being thrown up on stage by the writer in a flagrant attempt to make sense of his own life. Somewhere between the snark and the scandal, however, lies a hopeful and heartfelt love-letter to the city and people who have housed him for the last ten years.
