from "Lips Together, Teeth Apart"

Eclipse Theatre Company at The Athenaeum

The 2015 Terrence McNally Season will open with Lips Together, Teeth Apart. A gay community in Fire Island provides an unlikely setting for two straight couples who are discovered lounging poolside, staring out to sea. Through monologues unheard by the others, the characters reveal a desperate sense of individual isolation. The only people these four characters find more alien are the gay men partying in the houses on either side of them. As they divert themselves from their own mortality with food, cocktails, The New York Times crossword puzzle, fireworks, charades, and biting jabs at each other and the boys next door, Sally and Sam and John and Chloe find little to celebrate about themselves or their country on its birthday. Ted Hoerl makes his Eclipse directorial debut.
