In 1988 Terrence McNally introduced us to Andre’s mother, Katherine Gerard who is mourning the loss of her son Andre also at the funeral is Andre’s lover Cal Porter. In 2014 Mr. McNally brought back these characters but it’s twenty years later and Katherine has arrived at Cal’s home to find that he is now married to another man and they have a young son. A multi-generation look at the AIDS crisis, gay marriage, survivor guilt, homophobia and fears are revealed through humor, anxiety, regret and longing and possibly a lesson that any problem can be solved with Oreos and milk. This production contains adult themes and language.
