NEVER NORMAN ROCKWELL

Genre: Comedy, Lesbian+Gay
Written by Kyle Baxter, Directed By Anthony Gargano

 An All-American Bromance!

Dan and Shelly are getting married, and in the morning-after haze of the bachelor party, Dan’s roommate Jack drops a bombshell – he’s gay! Or maybe he’s bi, Jack’s a bit murky on the details, except when he’s not.

Dan wonders what this says about their friendship and why did Jack reveal it now? It turns out Jack's new boyfriend is the Bride-To-Be's brother Mark! There's Red Bull and Apple Jacks, Saturday Golf with the Fathers, and even a pre-nup pregnancy that make this a post-modern, screwball comedy about friends and the family we choose.
