JUST SAY LOVE – Movie Screening
Written for the stage by David Mauriello
Produced and Directed by Bill Humphreys
For over thirty years, David Mauriello has authored gay and straight-themed plays that have gained universal renown, and the Ring has premiered many of David’s new works.
The Ring will honor David’s legacy, both as a playwright and as mainstay of the
Ring’s Board of Directors, with a screening of his play Just Say
Love at the start of Pride Weekend.
Just Say Love tells the story of Guy, (Matthew Jaeger) a student of Plato and Doug (Robert Mammana) a brawny construction worker who is looking for more than a stroll in the park to blow off some steam. From their first fiery encounter that would make one believe that their relationship can never move beyond physical addiction alone, to the sublime (“you’d be my wings if I had them”) the film becomes a how-to manual for finding joy and fulfillment and
challenges us to consider that helping each other to grow spiritually is the paramount ingredient in and the real paradigm for personal relationships.
The event will also feature a
post-screening discussion with Bill Humphreys, producer, director and filmmaker, and Hershey Hershkop, Executive Director of Seacoast Outright.
