LAMENT is a ten minute play inspired by the death of ballet dancer, Rudolf Nureyev.

Starring: Rolando Chusan, Solonje Burns, Cooper Lawrence, directed by Jonathan Libman

Not long ago in New York same-sex marriage was illegal. While a world famous dancer is dying in a hospital room, his life partner, waits outside on the street as he is not admitted by his lover's side. The homophobic family take advantage of this, to exclude him, and the legal wife who agreed to pose as a cover, now greedily exploits the situation for her own selfish benefit.

A progressive journalist secretly watches the scene unfold, and reports on it.

Still, there are many states, and countries that ban LGBT rights.
