NOTE: Intended for mature audiences. Contains strong language, sexual situations, violence, live gunshots, hateful right-wing Christians and lesbians kissing.
Welcome yall to the small southern town of Tarnation! At the Sunnyside Baptist Church, the Christians are reveling over the good news that God finally won! Every abominable marriage is nullified! Before the new laws can take effect, two young lesbians enter the church intent on gettin hitched! Tensions escalate when the women lock themselves in the chapel to say their "I-dos." All hell breaks loose! The police arrive; the women resist; and the battle for moral supremacy ensues.
This full-length play is about the intolerance of marriage equality in the deep south. The characters express raw passions felt by both sides of the same-sex marriage argument.
What talkinbroadway.com said about Bedillion's last hit show: "Bedillion's brilliance as the writer and director of this show is that he isnt afraid to push on boundaries and try new things.Situated between avant-garde performance art and traditional narrative theatre, 'Forbidden Fruit' stitches together a variety of dramatic techniques to create a highly stylized postmodern theatrical cavalcade of contemporary gay experience."
