Dan Amboyer, Joel T. Bauer & More Set For FRIENDS AND RELATIONS Off-Bway

"Friends And Relations" by Marc Castle is being presented by No Anita No Productions (Tom Keegan) under the auspices of Fractured Atlas, a leading supporter of the not-for-profit art sector, Off Broadway at the June Havoc Theatre (Abingdon Complex), 312 West 36th Street (off 8th Avenue), NYC. The limited engagement begins on December 1 and the Opening is Sunday, December 4 at 2:00 pm. The warm, witty and poignant play is directed by Adam Fitzgerald.

The young talented cast includes: Dan Amboyer (Dean), Joel T. Bauer (Cory), Nigel DeFriez (Glen/Steve), Matt Golden (Miles), Vince Nappo (Byron), Ben Roberts (Bobby) and Chris Sloan (Ross). The Scenic Designer is David L. Arsenault; Lighting Designer - Travis McHale, Costume Designer - Erica E. Evans, Sound Designer - Ian Wehrle, Assistant Costume Designer - Rachel Guilfoyle and the Production Stage Manager is Jessica Pollack and the Assistant Stage Manager is Stefanie Wagner. The casting director is Paul Davis (Calleri Casting).

FRIENDS AND RELATIONS celebrates the lives of 7 gay men: Miles, Dean, Byron, Ross, Bobby, Corey and Glen in New York City during the wild hedonistic late1970's and the sobering 1980's (one of the most volatibable and exciting decades in gay history), as they search for love (and other things) in a world gone just a bit mad. For a decade, it loosely follows the particular relationship of Miles & Corey, and how they affect their larger group of friends as they meet, break-up, reconcile; and as the friendships change with the times that push the boundaries of friendship, love, sex, family and loyalty. Through success and failure, through break-ups and breakdowns, it also explores the nature of friendships in the gay community; friendships that, in the end, take on all of the (positive and negative) attributes of a family and what it means to have true relationships in a world where old definitions no longer apply.
