The last one act play in Harvey Fierstein's book SAFE SEX is called "On Tidy Endings". I think it is a wonderful play, and I plan to produce and direct it this fall because I feel it explores social acceptance -- or lack thereof -- of homosexuals, and this topic was thrust again into public debate recently by the Supreme Court's recent decision.The play focuses on a man whose lover left his wife five years ago. The lover has now died, and the ex-wife comes over to his apartment with a sense of entitlement, a sense of ownership not just over her ex-husband's physical possessions but over his life as well. She fails to recognize or validate the gay relationship which leads to great dialogue that explores the basis of truly loving relationships and the social rejection of homosexuals. A wonderful play, I recommend it highly.
