Am I normal?
Are you a homosexual?
Warren Kinsey?? What are you doing in my house??

In this 1950s-adjacent reality, husbands Sidney and Paul must answer these questions and more whilst coming to terms with their own identities, as well as that of the TV show host who refuses to leave them alone.

This production contains occurrences of homophobia and the use of homophobic slurs. Strobe lighting effects will be used.
