A father and son confront each other over the past and present and discover that judgments do not prevent love. The son wants dad to drink and gamble less, while dad thinks the son needs to return to LA, find a boyfriend, and get on with his acting career.

But love wins out in this heart-warming comedy of Filipino-Americans in the Bay Area from local playwright Alvarez.

It’s New Year in Rotterdam, and Alice has finally plucked up the courage to email her parents and tell them she’s gay.

But before she can hit SEND, her girlfriend reveals that they have always identified as a man and now wants to start living as one.

Now Alice must face a question she never thought she’d ask . . . does this mean she’s straight? A bittersweet comedy about gender, sexuality and being a long way from home.
