EVERYBODY LOVES EACH OTHER THESE DAYS
By Nathan Crawford
This is a comedic play focusing on a pansexual man struggling with the code switching he worries is necessary for him to date and having to move in with his sister. After breaking up with his boyfriend, the main character develops a crush on his sister’s roommate. The situation is complicated because the main character now lives in the same apartment with his crush, who keeps making confusing comments about his sexuality, and his sister, who is opposed to him dating her roommate while all three of them are living together.
Show Dates: 9/18, 9/19, 9/20, 9/21 @ 7:00 p.m. | 9/21 @ 3:30 p.m.
