Standing On Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays


Happy Medium Theatre (HMT) proudly announces a one-night-only, free staged reading of Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays on Tuesday, December 9, at 7:30pm, in the Moonshine Room of Club Café, 209 Columbus Avenue, Boston.

About the Production:
Saying two simple words might be the biggest challenge of your life. But what if the battle started before saying “I do,” and continued long after the ceremony? In Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays, prolific playwrights Moisés Kaufman (The Laramie Project), Paul Rudnick (Jeffrey), and Neil LaBute (The Shape of Things), among others, offer their own unique takes on the issues of equality, the universality of love, and the challenges and humor of living with someone whom you wish to share a lifetime together. These short plays form an evening of theatre ripe for discussion following the current legislation and litigation around the United States revolving around marriage equality.

A panel discussion will follow the staged reading, lead by: 
• Attorney Janson Wu, Executive Director of Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders (GLAD)
• Professor Katharine B. Silbaugh, Professor of Law at Boston University School of Law
• Mal Malme, Co-Founder of Queer Soup Theatre & Performer

“Funny, poignant, and eye-opening” – BROADWAY WORLD

“All you have to do is listen, shed an occasional tear and laugh a lot. There is something for everybody. . . . STANDING ON CEREMONY holds a magnifying glass to the highs and lows, joys and fears, courage and silliness, of people bucking trends and making history.” – THE NY OBSERVER




Thank you for your incredibly generous contribution to our IndieGoGo campaign to help fund our 6th Season!

As our 60-Day Fundraising campaign came to a close, everyone on the Happy Medium Theatre Company team had a moment to sit, relax and reflect on how lucky we are for having such a supportive fan base. Thank you! We love producing theatre, there’s no way we would commit the amount of blood, sweat and tears currently collected on the floor of the Factory Theater if we didn’t.

But now we know that you love it too!

At close of our campaign, we didn’t just meet our goal, we exceeded it by $500! Thank You! We hope that all of you how long even a little bit of pocket change goes in the fringe theatre scene. In this time of transition and change, a funding boost of $7,179 will allow HMT to continue to provide the high quality, kick-ass theatre that you have all come to know and love. Thank You!

With your support, we are now reared and ready to rock our Sixth Season out of this world. ‘Language of Angels’, directed by Lizette Morris, opens on October 23rd and will be the final show in the Factory theater as we know it – and you can find more info regarding tickets here.
