The honor of your presence is requested at CDC Theatre in Cranford. The invitation is to come and enjoy an hilarious and heartfelt collection of works written by eight of the nation’s best playwrights, including Mo Gaffney, Neil LaBute, Paul Rudnick and Moises Kaufman.

Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays is a powerful collection of short plays that celebrate love and explore the still-evolving landscape of marriage equality in the USA. Standing on Ceremony “holds a magnifying glass to the highs and lows, joys and fears, courage and silliness, of people bucking trends and making history” (NY Observer) with wit, humor and heart. “Funny and moving… a celebration.” (The New York Times)

For this special event, CDC Theatre has partnered with the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN). GLSEN is a non-profit organization whose mission is to create safe and affirming schools for all, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. Fifty percent of the ticket proceeds will be donated to GLSEN.

Funding has been made possible in part by the NJ State Council on the Arts, Dept. of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, through a grant administered by the Union County Office of Cultural & Heritage Affairs.
