Inhaltsangabe zu "Pulling Weeds"
This play shows the historic plight of the LGBT community by telling a story through the eyes of one married couple. The story starts in the future, years after Jerry Brown signed Senate Bill 48, also known as the FAIR Education Act, which forces the inclusion of the political, economic, and social contributions of people within the LGBT community. The couple’s granddaughter is reading about Harvey Milk in her history class, which causes them to reflect on the trials and tribulations of their own fight for equality. The story moves from Kim, one of the main characters, feeling forced by social pressure to marry a man knowing all along that it was wrong, to Sarah, her wife, who is continuously trying to cope with malicious acts because of her choice of lifestyle but still continues to be positive. The couple is also forced to move from their hometown to find a state that will not only allow them to adopt, but also allow them to mutually share legal custody of their adopted child. The play plots out the historic sufferings of the LGBT community by looking at the legal issues of each decade as well as the personal opinions of the average person when he or she discovers a neighbor is dissimilar.
