This powerful play follows the blossoming romance between two women, Callie and Sara, in New York City. Their love is tested when they become victims of a hate crime, prompting reflections on love, identity, and the impact of violence. Through non-linear storytelling, the play explores themes of homophobia and the transformative power of love in the face of adversity.

Offering a compelling look into the untold history of the early LGBTQ+ rights movement in 1950s America, this story focuses on the partnership between Harry Hay and Rudi Gernreich as they navigate societal prejudices and political activism. Through their journey, the play sheds light on the formation of the Mattachine Society, one of the first gay rights organizations in the United States.
