Admit Impediments

Synopsis:
When Josh invites all his friends over to watch him propose to his girlfriend Chaminade, it causes friction with their Gay friends Ritchie and Dominic, as well as with their friend Veronica, who spitefully marries a random Middle-Eastern man in a quickie Las Vegas wedding. "This show takes on the delicate issue of gay marriage, subtly accomplished by asking us to look at the nature of marriage, both heterosexual and for convenience. It asks tough questions and expresses the frustrations experienced by all people denied this basic human desire. (. . .) Mr. Pflaster takes himself seriously; these songs are Broadway worthy". - Li Murillo, Hi!Drama "Gay rights should always be this entertaining". - Mark Peikert, HX magazine

Wastes of Time, The

Synopsis:
A 20-something Gay man falls in love with a man 9 years his senior; their relationship is complicated by the younger man's overprotective mother. "It's uncommon these days for a gay-themed play to tackle the issues surrounding AIDS - both because it's a heavy, potentially unpopular subject and because it might seem irrelevant in an age of seemingly magical drug therapies that have extended many AIDS patients' lives. That's why it's such a pleasure to watch a play like the Wastes of Time that not only tackles the thorny subject but does it in a way that is relevant, insightful, and emotionally moving, without depending on nostalgia or maudlin gimmicks." - Jerry Portwood, Backstage.com
