About this show

Two parallel erudite Manhattan couples, one gay, one straight, each of whom have been together for over 20 years (who also have a long-standing friendship with one another) are in a similar fix. Handsome Brad loves his sweet William, but he has a wandering eye and an insatiable appetite for the sexual smorgasbord NYC offers. William has eyes only for Brad and a powerful desire for him to dine at home a lot more often. Ev loves his luscious Liz; Liz loves him back, but she has Daddy issues, and finds her Ev an emotional cold zone; so she finds a succession of gorgeous young men to keep her warm. Enter an emotionally bruised, recently returned veteran of the Iraq War, who is working as an NYC Cabbie. Ev gets into his taxi on his way to join Liz and his friends for dinner, and finds himself on the ride of his life. Ev's adventure with the cabbie morphs into a fantasy that punches a hole in the consciousness of these four people whose veneer of ultra-sophistication has been masking their pain, and barring the door to their true happiness. The barbed wire wit and the wine flow freely as the simmering war of the sexes (same and opposite) heats up; and we all find out that when engaging in the seriously funny game of Relationship Roulette, it's important to accept no substitutes for Only Love Will Do.
