Perfect Arrangement

12th Ave Arts
1620 12th Ave. Seattle

And you thought today's government was a mess. This raucous satire is set in 1950s Washington, D.C., where two State Department employees -- both gay and both locked firmly in the closet -- have been tasked with ferreting out homosexuals in their department. To avoid detection themselves, they've come up with what seems like the Perfect Arrangement: They've each married the other's partner. But their sitcom-like situation threatens to come crashing down around them when an employee discovers their deception. Inspired by the true story of the earliest stirrings of the American gay rights movement during the Lavender Scare of the McCarthy Era, this madcap comedic romp gives way to provocative drama as the characters are forced to deal with inconvenient truths.
