Mary Steelsmith's HAPPY AND GAY, is the winner of the ten minute play division of the 2009 Eileen Heckart
Drama for Seniors Competition.
You've seen these women before. They stay in the background, seemingly content to decorate the church fellowship hall with crepe' paper, bring the funeral service casseroles and knit baby shower booties. They've seen it all -- until today. Today, history is being made at the church as it hosts its first gay wedding. Betty worries over the proper "gay" way to hang crepe' paper streamers, while Veronica stresses about what people will say about their preacher's radical decision to use the church for these kinds of affairs. Her fears are deeper and more personal than she will admit.
