In the opening scene, two Supreme Beings plan the beginning of the world. Once they decide on the color scheme of the races, a little concerned that white people will feel slighted being such a boring color, they create sex and the sexes. From this moment, the audience is whisked through an outrageous universe, where actresses will play men and women struggling through the common rituals of modern life: teenagers on a date, sisters at their grandmothers funeral, a man and a woman in a country western bar. With boundless humor, Parallel Lives reexamines the ongoing quest to find parity and love in a contest handicapped by capricious gods or in this case, goddesses.
