Straight - 2016 - Off-Broadway

Meet Ben. Ben is a 26-year investment banker. Ben likes beer, sports, and Emily. And Chris.

Funny, sad, sexy, and surprising, this three-character drama meditates on fidelity, identity, and the moral complex of a generation that prides itself on the pretense of acceptance.


Running Time: 90 minutes, with no intermission
