Universally understood stories of life, love, and sexuality that cross generations are highlighted in this program of shorts that take us through life’s ups and downs from formative years into adulthood and beyond. Three best friends tackle major life transitions over a farewell camping trip in MORE OF LAST NIGHT; a middle-aged gay couple struggles with coming out in MOTHER’S MILK AND COOKIES; and two old Drag Queens ponder life before their final show in LIFE’S A DRAG.
