A musical in one act. Book and Lyrics by David Kingsmill. Music by David Kingsmill and Nicholas Chave.
Joseph is an MA Photography student with assignments due and no idea what to do. Ryan, a mischievous, homosexual dilettante living off his parents’ money, appears in Joseph’s life, and offers his services as a model, but is he truly altruistic? Joseph welcomes someone who can broaden his world view until Ryan gets a little too personal. Motives and first impressions come into question, and bonds of friendship are stretched to breaking point in this contemporary, tw0-man musical.
