COMMENTS:

Gift centered around three homosexual men. Two of the men were in a dysfunctional relationship, caused mostly because one of the partner never came out of the bathroom, and the third man was the ?GIFT?. The ?sane? member of the relationship bought his boyfriend another man to sleep with as a present for his birthday in an attempt to coax him out of the bathroom. He succeeds, but as soon as his lover exits the bathroom he sees himself in the mirror and beings to go crazy, seeing the young boy, ?his present? only makes things worse. The back and forth discussion/flight between the two lovers goes on with the poor boy caught in the middle. The actors seem to be very committed to their characters. The show was very funny and kept my attention throughout the entire piece. The show also spans generation gaps both I and my daughter was laughing a lot.
