Washington, DC, 1950. State Department employees Bob and Nora find themselves at the forefront of the moment when the Red Scare adds shades of Lavender. In other words, along with rooting out potential Communists, the couple must now investigate “deviants,” i.e., gays.

Unfortunately for Bob and Nora, they are also, gay and their marriage is a cover for their actual partners, who also pretend to be a married couple. Hilarious screwball misdirection eventually gives way to a sober examination of gay rights and American values.

All students are able to come out to the Student Center on campus to enjoy an evening of fun and games. Students can play games, shoot pool, watch tv, eat some food, or just chill & hang out with your friends.
