Beau has spent his life trying to blend into a world that told him to be invisible. Rufus lives his life openly and becomes fascinated with the much older Beau. Falling into a whirlwind affair, over a decade, they navigate a relationship neither expect, but on which both depend. This is a bittersweet, funny romance about being a gay man in the 21st century, and finding love along the way.
Beau: An older gay man (plays 61 to 75). A gentle but hardened musician. Cultured and traveled. From everywhere and nowhere. New Orleans accent.
Rufus: A young gay man (plays 28 to 42). A passionate, manic lawyer. An old soul. Suffers from bipolar depression. Posh English accent.
