I really enjoyed this play. I'm over coming out stories but this one hits a segment of the population that still needs to be educated. Fine performances.

Description

Over the past several years, the debate over same-sex marriage has split the country, deeply divided religious communities, and galvanized American politics. Directed by Nick DeGruccio, Caught, a world premiere play by David L. Ray, centers around the upcoming wedding of Kenneth and Troy, a committed gay couple living in Los Angeles. Only days before the event, Kenneth’s estranged and culturally-conservative sister, Darlene, and her daughter unexpectedly visit from Georgia. Caught explores the meaning of “marriage,” and how a family can find a way to meet in the middle while navigating long-standing religious values and staying true to their core beliefs.

Caught squarely earns both its laughter and its tears and, says Broadway World, “triumphs as a genuinely riveting, enjoyable piece of living theater.”

Writer David L. Ray is an acclaimed emerging playwright whose previous works have been produced nationwide, including the historic Cherry Lane Theatre in New York, Actors Theatre of Louisville, and the Marilyn Monroe Theatre in West Hollywood.

Nick DeGruccio is a multi Ovation, LADCC, and Garland Award-winner for Best Director. He has helmed productions at other prestigious theaters, including South Coast Rep, The Colony Theatre, Laguna Playhouse, Pasadena Playhouse, The Rubicon, Cabrillo Music Theatre, Musical Theatre West, Performance Riverside and more. He is the artistic director of the acclaimed Havoc Theatre Company.
