Play Name: Based on a Totally True Story
Description: Cute, kinda nerdy New Yorker Ethan Keene seems to have it all: a career as a successful comic book writer by day and struggling playwright by night and a great, recently-met boyfriend, with whom he shares a nice Greenwich Village apartment. But Ethan's world is suddenly turned upside down when Mary Ellen Eustice, an assertive Hollywood producer, wants to turn one of Ethan's unproduced plays into a big-budget horror movie – possibly starring Nicole Kidman. With movie fame and fortune (and other Hollywood temptations!) clouding his vision, Ethan struggles to be a loving, supportive partner to his boyfriend Michael Sullivan, a Village Voice reporter and budding novelist. On top of which, Ethan's dad announces that he's leaving Ethan's mom for a married woman – and can he please stay with Ethan and Michael until he finds a new place to live? Hearts are broken, lessons learned, and dreams deferred in this quirky, offbeat romantic comedy of manners.

Play Name: Big Love
Description: Fifty brides flee their fifty grooms and seek refuge in a villa on the coast of Italy in this modern re-making of one of the western world's oldest plays, The Danaids by Aeschylus. And, in this villa on the Italian coast, the fifty grooms catch up with the brides, and mayhem ensues: the grooms arriving by helicopter in their flight suits, women throwing themselves over and over again to the ground, pop songs and romantic dances, and, finally, unable to escape their forced marriages, 49 of the brides murder 49 of the grooms-and one bride falls in love. About the same odds as today.
