Tommy and Kevin have what is known as a non-traditional relationship. To most appearances, they're roommates. Actually, they're lovers. That's a fact Tommy would like to proclaim to the world but which Kevin would just as soon keep a secret, particularly as they embark on a weekend with Kevin's parents. Along the drive, they argue and fantasize -- in a series of comically exaggerated vignettes -- about what lies ahead. Will Tommy play the queen? Will Kevin's parents discover, let alone accept, the fact that their son is gay? Will the relationship survive the weekend?

Published Reviews

"A scathing romp through the gay male psyche..."

Wesley South, ETC Magazine

"Surprising, funny and poignant ... thoughtfully observes how hard it can be when who you are is not the stuff of conventional dreams."

Charlie Patton, Florida Times-Union

"A scathing romp through the gay male psyche... The fact that [Parts Unknown] was made possible, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts is proof positive that someone at that beleaguered agency knows quality gay work when they see it... I laughed and laughed. I also got punched in the nose, and somewhat misty -- an exquisite evening's entertainment."

Wesley South, ETC Magazine
