Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays

Standing on Ceremony logo

 

Perhaps more than any other current controversy, same-sex marriage has been discussed and debated in state legislatures, classrooms, courtrooms and across dining room tables throughout the country. Standing On Ceremony brings the issue down to the human level with laughter and just a few tears. The play not only addresses gay marriage but also celebrates all individuals who commit to a life-long journey together. A heartwarming gem.

Read what the Tampa Bay Times had to say about Standing on Ceremony: the Gay Marriage Plays.
