Meet Ben. Ben is a 26-year-old investment banker. Ben likes beer, sports, and Emily. And Chris. “Straight” is a provocative new play that deals with fidelity, sexuality and identity in “post-equality” America. Funny, sad, sexy and surprising, this three-character drama takes a hard look at the moral complex of a generation that prides itself on the pretense of acceptance.

“’Straight’ is smart, bracing andbrimming with clever wisecracks and thought-provoking observations on sexual identity.”—The New York Times

“At its heart, ‘Straight’ really isn’t about what we are or even what we want to be. After all, no one can choose what they are. All we can choose is what we do about it, how we act once we know.”—The Huffington Post
