Synopsis
It’s 1950, and new colors are being added to the Red Scare. Two U.S. State Department employees, Bob and Norma, have been tasked with identifying sexual deviants within their ranks. There’s just one problem: Both Bob and Norma are gay, and have married each other’s partners as a carefully constructed cover. Inspired by the true story of the earliest stirrings of the American gay rights movement, madcap classic sitcom-style laughs give way to provocative drama as two “All-American” couples are forced to stare down the closet door.

Rehearsal Dates and Location
First read through will be Sunday, February 19th, with rehearsals running intermittently from the end of February to the end of March when full rehearsals will begin. Rehearsals will take place at the StageQ rehearsal space (UW Campus area).
