Bright Colors and Bold Patterns is a riotous solo play that storms the stage with ferocity and wit, deemed “fantastic” and “pure magic” by Time Out New York, and “side-splitting” and “fresh” from The Huffington Post when it debuted in New York last year. It was hailed as “raucous, witty and occasionally moving” by The Daily Beast, “outrageous and stinging” by Out Magazine and “relentlessly funny” by Buzzfeed.

Josh and Brennan are about to get married in Palm Springs on a lovely Saturday afternoon. However, the night before becomes a drunken, drug-fueled riot, because their friend Gerry has arrived, furious that their invitation says “Please refrain from wearing bright colors or bold patterns.” In the struggle for equality, what do we really want? What do we lose? And is there any cocaine left?
