Jeffrey is in his early thirties, obsessed with sex but only as a means of finding true love. However he is paranoid (sic) by the dangers and consequences of physical contact so he decides to be celibate and find an alternative to sex. At this moment he meets Steve, handsome, fit, sexy 'Mr perfect'. Or is he? Jeffrey's paranoia and hang-ups make him run for the hills and, even worse, contemplate leaving The Big Apple and return(ing) to Wisconsin. This is a play about Jeffrey's journey to confront his demons and face up to being a gay man living in the world of America in the 1990s. We all share the same destination, a fate we have no control over. The paths we take vary and make us the individuals we are - unique and remarkable. Tonight we invite you to join Jeffrey and all our other colourful characters on their journey through the rainbow. BWH.
