Eleanor and Ephram, sister and brother, are both getting married on the same day. And they’re each getting married to a man. Patrick, Ephram’s groom, agrees with Eleanor that they all... More > need to make a statement by getting married. But Roland, Eleanor’s groom, and Ephram both just want a simple ceremony and a quiet day. Attraction also blossoms between the minister, known as the Duchess, and a policeman standing guard over the church, Duke. But a secret from the Duchess’ past may prove more of an obstacle than the two of them can overcome. Outside among the protesters, Patrick’s younger brother Jacob hurls a rock through the stained glass window in an effort to keep the wedding from taking place. When the rock draws blood, one couple may not end up getting married today, or any other day. Script commissioned and first produced by Allegheny College, Meadville, PA.

Seth is a young Marine serving during wartime. Nicholas is his civilian husband who waits back home. In addition to the strain on their relationship caused by distance and absence, they must hide... More > their love for one another behind code words and secret identities because of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy barring gays and lesbians from serving openly in the United States military. Temptations also weaken their resolve. Jonas, another young gay Marine in Seth’s unit just coming to terms with his identity, forms an intense bond with Seth overseas. Tyson, a former Army soldier, now works alongside Nicholas. When Seth returns home for leave with Jonas at his side, and post-traumatic stress following him from the battlefield, old relationships are tested, and new ones bloom. In the end, the realities of war call on one man to make the ultimate sacrifice.
