A side-splitting one-man tour-de-force starring Stray Cat fave Michael Thompson.

Coming out of a pandemic, we felt a gut-busting comedy was in order. And this one is a scream. It’s the night before Josh and Brennan’s picture-perfect Palm Springs wedding. Enter Gerry - car-cranky and a few beers in - furious that the invitation demands that all guests “refrain from wearing bright colors or bold patterns.” Gerry stews poolside with his ex and the ex’s 20-something boyfriend in this hilarious new comedy about the worst wedding guest of all time that asks some essential questions about contemporary gay life: Why do people settle for assimilation instead of liberation? Where’s khaki in the rainbow? And IS there any damn alcohol left? 

“Devastatingly funny." - The New York Times

The performance contains brief rear nudity, adult language and adult situations and would likely earn a rating of PG-13.
