Ken Duncam's Cherish follows the dramatic reverberations of a surrogacy dispute between a gay couple and a lesbian couple, whose parental instincts threaten to tear them apart. Duncam's play deals with not only the issue of gay parenthood, but with the universal struggle to be true to ourselves while doing what is best for our families. In Cherish the characters face a truth that echoes in all of our lives: "The things you can't have -- they define you, shape you. They belong to you. They're not an outrage to natural justice. They are nature. They're something to be cherished." June Stein directs.
