Directions for Restoring the Apparently Dead (Pride Films and Plays):  Code Blue

Playwright Martin Casella won the Pride Films and Plays 2013 Great Gay Play Contest, and now his winning play is holding its world premiere at Stage 773.  Directions is about two childhood chums that reunite as adults for a vacation.  Griff (played by Patrick Rybarczyk) is married with two children.  Jinx (played by Patrick Gannon) is a recent widower – Richard, his partner of 15 years, unexpectedly died.  Now Jinx is revisiting his strong feelings for his boyhood crush.  The wrinkle is Griff is heterosexual and a Mormon.
