World premiere by local playwright. Presenting sponsors Robin & Peter Hersha. Set in 2016, two ex-soldiers, Alex (the Yank) and Web (the Confederate), ghosts are still inhabiting their home on the abandoned turkey far.  These men have lived through much of gay history and have had a wonderful adventure and a great romance.  Their quasi-existence is interrupted by the sudden arrival of a man and a woman dragging a sixteen year old lesbian, entrusted to their care by her parents with the hope that they can “pray away the gay” and turn her into a happy heterosexual. Should Alex and Web get involved even if it means their permanent disappearance after over 150 years? Of course the answer is yes.
