Synopsis: On their 20th wedding anniversary, Tom and Lisa are surprised by their old friend Matt who has flown in specifically to see them on this special day. Tom is a Republican Senator from Virginia, Lisa is a volunteer at a local shelter, and Matt is the campaign manager for the Republican nominee for the upcoming Presidential election. The three of them have known each other since college and have a long history that has recently been complicated by the death of Tom’s brother, Jay, who was also Matt’s lover. After the initial shock wears off of Matt invading their “special day,” he quickly announces that Tom is the top Vice Presidential choice for his candidate. But there’s one little problem: Tom is agnostic. How will his personal beliefs play in to this decision and where will he and Lisa land on this potentially life altering decision?
Post Show conversation with the cast and special guests Brian Wilson, PCS Board Member & recent candidate for Multnomah County Commissioner District 1 and Sarah Rosenau, Assistant Minister First Congregational Church of Christ.
