This month’s play is God is Dead & April’s Getting Married by A.A. Brenner.
Five years after graduating from high school, El and Elliott have moved onward and upward with their lives…or have they? After receiving a wedding invitation from Mormon ex-best friend and girlfriend April, they are forced to reexamine their past relationships and selves as they struggle to answer the question that has continued to haunt them for the past five years: what happened, actually? And what does this mean for their futures—and for April’s?
God is Dead & April’s Getting Married examines the tenuous nature of memory and reality while exploring the intersections of queerness, religion and friendship. This time-bending comedy-drama strives to answer one of life’s most hotly debated questions: do people ever truly change?
