A One Act Play Written by Gregory G. Allen

In a dystopian future, two couples come together to remember life before the gay purge and must decide if they can continue the risk of a weekly dinner together.

Playwright Gregory G. Allen's latest play tackles highly debated topics such as LGBT rights, politics, life, and love. This dining room drama is full of layers that are unwrapped in real time as two couples must make some very
tough decisions.

The Handmaid’s Tale such a hit and 1984 recently on Broadway, Allen wanted to share a fictionalized projection of what could possibly happen in the future for the LGBT community...if we’re not careful.

ASD Media & Entertainment is proud to partner with other organizations, theaters, and producers to see this play brought to fruition.
