This new, all original dramatic play debuted May 9th, 2016 at the American Theater for Actors in New York City. Performed in front of sold out audiences for 9 performances, the show was unforgettable and resonant! We look forward to producing the show in regional and International venues...

Told from two perspectives and distinct narratives from each point of view, (presented at times through scenes of their fantasies and other scenes as their reality) newly engaged couple Nathaniel and Gemini who though have an intense love for each other, also have an underlying, stirring nervousness for nuptials in their own unique ways. On the eve of Nate's 30th birthday, an especially contemplative time for him, a dinner party with friends ensues, and a complicated secret is eventually revealed. Not only must Gemini and Nate navigate through their hopes, fears, and insecurities throughout the play, but also must their beloved friends who are closest to them. Everyone is forced to take an honest and raw look at what they really want and who they really are, ultimately revealing that perception is completely subjective, ever changing, and unique for each individual. They learn that the complicated journey of ALL relationships, not just the one between them, can cause dire consequences for everyone else in their lives if expectations precede personal truth, and the illusion of it. Will, what they already HAVE in front of them withstand newly revealed discoveries, or will their desire for their "alleged" need for rigorous honesty get the best of them, their relationship, and their friendships? Both comedic at times as much as it is provocative and heart wrenching, sensual, and dramatic, this play takes a solid look at the gamut of human relationships and tackles the many facets of life and its challenges and rewards.
Elise Milner, (playwright) has been called "the new Neil LaBute" and compared to a modern Beth Henley (Crimes of the Heart.) She writes with heart, depth, soul, and all of her characters have a strong sense of humanity and complicated layers. Her writing is relevant, edgy, provocative, comedic, and sometimes controversial, but always gives audiences much to discuss and stir about. This new play is no different; thought provoking and envelope pushing, it both challenges the boundaries of "societal norm," allowing the characters to eloquently speak of topics only we THINK about, while unveiling the deepest parts of themselves...
