In the aftermath of Trump’s election, newlyweds Gary and Ben have to keep each other sane and solvent. But as the country’s political landscape drives Ben to his breaking point, Gary changes too –in ways that he has to keep secret from his husband. Gary can’t tell Ben about the nightly seductions of a certain phantasmagorical fascist. And he definitely can’t tell Ben that in the process of bringing home the bacon, he’s fallen in love with a pig.
MIKE PENCE SEX DREAM will play February 16 – March 16 at The Den Theatre, 1331 N. Milwaukee Ave. in Chicago. For more information visit firstfloortheater.com.
