Thirsty Thursday: Daniel’s Husband

So many of my gay friends think “why bother?” now that society encourages us to shack up legally like the rest of our herd. Maybe that is not such a bad idea, after all, warns the “incomparable and prolific” playwright Michael McKeever in his tear-jerker Daniel’s Husband, now playing at Empire Stage as Island City Stage’s season finale.

Get tickets for this play which, according to the web site, “is about a contemporary gay couple who are challenged with the consequences of not getting officially married. Even in an enlightened society, when fundamental rights are denied, the results can be devastating to all involved. With humor, pathos and great insight, Daniel’s Husband explores the consequences of accepting the limitations defined by society.”
