The Little Dog Laughed (2013)
The play centres around Mitchell Green, a rising Hollywood star, and his domineering, deeply ambitious agent, Diane, who is determined to buy the rights to a brand new play and turn it from a 'gay play' into a 'hetro' rom-com blockbuster as a vehicle to propel Mitchell to superstardom. To ensure this happens, Diane has to maintain Mitchell's straight guy-next-door image by preventing him from bursting out of the closet and announcing to the world that he has fallen for a bi-sexual rent boy, Alex. Into the mix arrives Ellen, the rent boy's girlfriend.
Will love conquer all or will the desire for fame and fortune win the day?
