Dog & Pony Show, The

Synopsis:
autobiography, animal behavior, and bald-faced lies create this poetic meditation on midlife crisis in the key of canine. after years as a self described "professional homosexual," our heroine gives up preaching to the perverted and pestering the religious right. She takes a real job at a prestigious university, acquires a small pack of dogs, and discovers that as we age, the thin membrane that divides the animal from the human dissolves entirely.

Let them Eat Cake

Synopsis:
Let them eat Cake is the wedding nightmare your mother warned you about, a gay marriage gone wrong that asks the guests to salvage the situation by interrogating what it means to be married, single, gay, straight, commitment-phobic, a joiner, included or jeering from the outskirts. Come for the cake, if nothing else!
