Donald Moscowitz has overbearing parents.

DON'T WE ALL?

Donald is trying to live his life as a gay man in 1980s New York—a struggling actor no less. Of course his parents are in denial about his lifestyle, disapprove of his career choice, and question his flair for decoration.

To get his family to stop kvetching, Donald needs a son.

With the help of his ballsy best friend Henrietta and rising drag queen Levi, Donald hires the ten-year-old kid from downstairs to play his son.

What could go wrong?

This fast-paced new comedy, from the wit of Marshall Goldberg, takes audiences on a rollicking risqué ride to remind us just how far we’ll go for family.
