Daniel's Husband Makes Its Off-Broadway Debut
Beginning its life at the Cherry Lane Theatre in 2017, Michael McKeever's critically acclaimed drama 'Daniel's Husband' is set to reach a wider audience thanks to a hotly anticipated Off-Broadway transfer at New York's West Side Theater this fall. Enjoying an open ended run, the poignant examination of love, relationships, and same sex marriage in the eyes of both the law and its participants wears its agenda on its sleeve with a devastating, thought-provoking effect, imploring its audiences to think about what they would do if ever in the same situation.
The story follows Daniel and Mitchell, whose seemingly perfect house, perfect friends and perfect coupledom hides inner turmoil. Daniel yearns for marriage whilst Mitchell vehemently opposes it, in the latter's eyes they've circumvented an antiquated contract more based on financial gain that everlasting love by having their lawyer tend to all legal and monetary aspects of their relationship. But best laid plans are cast into doubt in the play's second half, with each man forced to face the consequences of their opposing views.
