Cole Thomas’s new play Lying in Bed is serious and sexy, witty and intelligent, fun, dangerous and slightly odd. Representing inclusive genders and sexualities, its characters are sorting out their truths - hiding, then showing themselves, healing and sometimes slowly killing themselves.
Lying in Bed is a play in two acts that brings its audience a dozen characters who find themselves on a back corner “church” pew marveling at just how much overlap exists in the human condition. Regardless of ethnicity, we want to be attractive and loved. Regardless of sexual or gender orientation, we want to be healthy and secure. Regardless of religion or creed, we want our truth accepted and we often seek to comprehend the truths of others.
Entrepreneur Lane and her partner, the sometimes-brooding- often-comedic writer Lucky, encounter laughter and danger, love and loss, courage and gratitude. Along with odd “couple” Vik and River and delivery dude Semi and his late wife, Ellie, you’ll meet Pauli, Ph.D., her horticulturist wife Venesse, and their yogi healer submissive. You’ll be treated to Chez’s plagiarized poetry, to Grandpop’s timely wisdom and to an addicted-nurses amazing swish.
This occasionally merry band of colorful characters finally agrees: We all have something for which to be grateful. We want simply to MATTER.
