I'm not looking for special treatment (as a gay man). That's a subject that really bothers me. I just want to play on the level playing field--and I can beat the pants off the best of them. I don't want to be treated as a minority. I want to compete. You hear things behind your back all the time. A lot of it is innuendo. It doesn't come up directly. Over the years, I've heard, through other people that, "Such and such is making comments about your boyfriend," or about having to work with faggots or things like that.

"Legal Briefs" is a bill of four short plays about law. This Antaeus Company production at the Ivy Substation has some failures as well as some resounding successes. Billy K. Wells' vaudeville ditty, "The Ambulance Chaser," is a slight, throwaway piece with predictable jokes performed with over-the-top enthusiasm under the direction of Michael Clark Haney.

Taking aim at a topic as loaded as the revolver with which its characters take turns menacing one another, Buddy Farmer's “Alabama Baggage” centers on the traumatic scars of childhood sexual abuse. The drama's first full staging at Theatre Asylum falls short of its serious intentions, however, with the need for further development still evident. A good starting place for rework would be to clarify and fully commit to those intentions. At present, the play teeters awkwardly between realistic exploration of survivor psychology and over-the-top Southern Gothic revenge thriller.
