Sweet, Sweet Spirit
Play: Family Drama 

When a father's temper lands his gay teenage son in the critical care unit of a small-town West Texas hospital, the family members square off to assign blame and claim custodial rights. But as his condition worsens, each must turn inward and ask the tougher questions: Who, among them, is best to care for this child, and what place can they find for him in their world?
