Synopsis: "Metrosexual Coalcracker struggles with the reality of living with a toxic family in small town Pennsylvania. Moss is not out to his family and lives in plain sight with his husband, Link. Link comes home one night to find that Moss has been shot by his drunken, homophobic twin. Moss, unable to upset his family will not seek medical attention and the young men's apartment becomes a revolving door of family members, distant friends, and unconcerned parties. Moss must decide what he is willing to take - other than bullets, of course."

Themes: Gender Issues, Family
Rated R for Sexual/Gender themes and mild violence


DG Footlights™ is a program, created and moderated by the Dramatists Guild, that connects dramatists with free space in which to hold a public reading of a new work that is currently in development. This initiative operates on a space-grant model: a representative from the Guild will arrange for a venue to donate space during allocated dates and times, and will ensure that the space is available for dramatists to use to present a self-produced reading to the public, with an optional feedback session following the reading.


Attendance is always free and open to all.
