Told with heart and humor, playwright Philip Dawkins' latest comedy, Le Switch, emphasizes that while everyone should have the inalienable right to marry, knowing when to practice that right can be a nerve-wracking proposition. Sharing world-premiere honors with the About Face Theater in Chicago, this Jungle Theater production tells the tale of David, a thirtysomething gay man whose ambivalence toward marriage is awkwardly contrasted with the sudden eagerness of his friends to get hitched. David's uncertainty is made even more pressing when he travels to Montreal for his best friend's bachelor party only to be smitten with a young florist. Suddenly David finds himself facing a whole new set of relationship expectations, ones in which he has previously had — with or without legal recognition — little personal interest. Under the seasoned direction of Jeremy B. Cohen, this socially relevant romantic comedy offers a knockout cast of Kasey Mahaffy (in the lead), Michael Hanna, Patrick Bailey, Emily Gunyou Halaas, and Michael Wieser. The show is in previews June 15-16.
