Two Come Home


A decade after a dramatic split, star-crossed lovers reunite at the worst time. Guilt, rage, and love collide in this new play with music.

Accompanied by an equally chilling and uplifting score provided by a small live band, this story of regret and second chances covers a legion of themes from poverty, addiction, generational trauma and repressed love - but at its core, it's a salute to the bravery needed to connect with others and break free from solitude.

Two Come Home explores the realities of being gay in an impoverished rural community and the ways guilt, rage, and love define our relationships.

Focusing on Evan's rocky ties with his kin and past flame, this production boasts a queer team both on and off stage.
