WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

After making a hit with audiences and critics in Los Angeles, a very likable, if unlikely, comedy about a man facing prostate cancer will have an Invited Audience reading starring Tony Award winning actor James Naughton, (Chicago, City of Angels). A divorced single parent in his 50's is diagnosed with prostate cancer at the most inconvenient time for him, just when he has begun a passionate romance with a woman who just might be the right one for him. To avoid surgery he elects a less invasive treatment, whose one "minor" side effect is that it renders him a chemical eunuch for a year. The comedy and drama derive from the circumstance of a man having to execute all his iconic male roles --father, son, lover, friend, ex-husband, teacher, writer, human - only now from the point of view of a man facing his mortality and, worse, with no sex drive. At the core of the play is the serious question: What does it mean to be a man when the thing that defines manhood is gone? Email testosteronetheplay@gmail.com for reservations.
