In 2011, NY state passed the same-sex marriage rights bill, and then in 2015, the United States recognized same-sex marriage in all 50 states, and even all these years later, this has further fueled the national debate over the subject of marriage equality. SAS Performing Arts Virtual Theater closes our season with a bold work of theatre by 8 of the nation’s best playwrights. “Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays” is a series of short pieces which are a union of engagement and great theatre, staged to promote gay marriage rights and explore our ever-evolving society. This highly entertaining collection of short works approaches its subject with a combination of heart and humor. The performance, as a whole, is unapologetically celebratory of gay marriage.
The evening consists of works authored by such outstanding playwrights as Mo Gaffney, Jordan Harrison, Moisés Kaufman, Neil LaBute, Wendy MacLeod, José Rivera, Paul Rudnick, and Doug Wright.
