Daniel’s Husband

Written by Michael McKeever
Directed by Simon Levy
Starring Bill Brochtrup, Tim Cummings, Jose Fernando, Ed Martin, and Jenny O’Hara.

May 4 – June 23, 2019
Southern California premiere of Daniel’s Husband  — Michael McKeever’s witty, passionate, funny and, ultimately, heartrending play takes an unflinching look at how we choose to tie the knot — or not. Daniel and Mitchell are the perfect couple. What isn’t so perfect is that Daniel desperately longs to be married, but Mitchell doesn’t believe in it. Then, a life-altering event forces both men to realize that, even in an enlightened society, the denial of fundamental rights leads to devastating results. Starring Bill BrochtrupTim Cummings, Jose Fernando, Ed Martin, and Jenny O’Hara; directed by Simon Levy.
