When a closeted politician becomes the center of Maine’s heated 2009 same-sex marriage debate, he must choose between being honest with himself and the world, or risk losing his entire career and family. Inspired by true events, Question 1 is a musical dramedy about human equality and the power within each of us to contribute either strife or kindness to humanity.


Question 1 was previously presented in the Theatre Resources Unlimited Play Reading Series.

November 22nd, 1963: John F. Kennedy's presidential motorcade heads ominously down the streets of Dallas, Texas. 3 shots ring out. Days later, Lee Harvey Oswald is led through the basement of the Dallas Police headquarters, only to meet his doom at the hands of Jack Ruby. A nation mourns. Not only for the loss of a great leader, but for a truth that can never be told. Oswald follows Lee Harvey Oswald’s elderly widow as she tells two possible versions of her husband’s story simultaneously.

Oswald was previously presented in the Theatre Resources Unlimited Play Reading Series.
