Playwright S. Asher Gelman’s new play Afterglow is the gripping and seductive Off-broadway act you do not want to miss.
As described on the play’s website:
Afterglow is a raw, one-act play exploring the emotional, intellectual, and physical connections between three men and the broader implications within their relationships.
Josh and Alex, a married couple in an open relationship, invite Darius to share their bed one night. When a new intimate connection begins to form, all three men must come to terms with their individual definitions of love, loyalty, and trust as futures are questioned, relationships are shaken, and commitments are challenged.
If you just so happen to be in New York for NYC Pride, you are in luck because the climatic play that explores the three-sided angles of a love triangle has been extended through pride (June 14th-24) and beyond.
The thought-provoking play is showing at The Loft at the Davenport Theatre (354 West 45th Street New York, NY 10036) through Sunday, July 1st. To see seating prices and reserve your ticket visit www.telecharge.com.
