“Standing on Ceremony – The Gay Marriage Plays” Returns to the Annenberg Theater During Palm Springs Pride Weekend
Nominated for 8 Desert Theatre League Awards including Best Production, Best Director, and Best Actor!
PALM SPRINGS, CA – September 9, 2013: Two little words – “I do” – and suddenly your whole world changes. Don’t miss this evening of new short plays conceived by Brian Shnipper and written by an A-list lineup of writers with 2 Pulitzer Prizes, 4 Obies, 1 Emmy® and 3 Tony® nominations, including Mo Gaffney, Jordan Harrison, Moises Kaufman, Neil LaBute, Wendy MacLeod, Jose Rivera, Paul Rudnick and Doug Wright. Be there as they offer their unique take on the moments before, during and after “I do.” Witty, warm and occasionally wacky, these plays are vows to the blessings of equality, the universal challenges of relationships and the often-hilarious power of love.
