The Department of Theatre opens its season with a hilarious and heartfelt collection of new works written by eight of the nation’s best playwrights. Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays, which will be staged as site-specific and immersive vignettes throughout the Drake Performance and Event Center, explores the risk of commitment, the terror of forever, and the indelible power of love, for every single one of us.
Audiences will move throughout the Drake Center and its environs for nine short plays and are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes and come ready to eat some cake and throw some rice.
