Beginning November 7, marriage gets a whole lot funnier. 

For one night, curtains will rise on Standing on Ceremony, an evening of new short plays by an amazing lineup of writers including Mo Gaffney, Moises Kaufman, Neil LaBute, and Paul Rudnick, at more than 40 theaters around the country. The play will have an open-ended run in New York City beginning that night. Details are below.

Freedom to Marry is proud to partner with Standing on Ceremony, which tells stories of life and love with laughter and tears, following committed gay and lesbian couples through the ups and downs of building a life together -- in short, the reasons why marriage matters to gay people, too.

The evening will feature an introduction before the play and a post-performance Q&A from New York City that will be streamed live to participating theatres. Each theater will have its own reading of the play. Audience members can participate in the Q&A by submitting questions via Twitter using the hashtag #marriageforall.  Freedom to Marry Founder and President Evan Wolfson will speak as part of the introduction and Q&A.
