A Stab at Alabama Politics Through Gay Marriage Lens

Tom Wofford’s debut play tackles same-sex marriage in a hothouse Birmingham setting

Picture this: A lanky, 40-plus male, very smart, dressed for the Alabama heat lying on a padded bench in the lobby of the Birmingham Festival Theatre. The walls are covered floor to ceiling with framed posters of dozens of plays the theater has produced over the years ranging from Beckett to Mamet to Kushner to Albee and many, many more. In the background, a man and a woman are shouting lines to each other while they rehearse the next production of Albee’s “The Goat.”
