In a Midwest college town, two freshmen flirt, find themselves, and debate the intricacies of queer life. But when one of them connects with the town's mayor on a dating app, their conceptual discourse leads to dire consequences. A new gay play about an old gay myth.
This production contains explicit language, including a homophobic slur; discussions of sexual assault, pedophilia, and suicide; depictions of self-harm.
