Experimenting with Katz

Michael Katz has come out to his mother for the second time and it's not going very well.

Michael Katz has a problem: he’s just come out of the closet (again), and it’s not going particularly well. First, his mother shows up unexpectedly in the midst of a snowstorm to ambush him with (among other things) the daughter-in-law of her dreams. Then his best friend selfishly decides to start putting her own life above his (and it’s still snowing)! On top of everything, the one person who’s willing to put up with him is the only person he doesn’t want anything to do with (at least that’s what he keeps telling himself), leaving Michael to wonder, is this really the course of true love, or is it some social experiment gone horribly wrong? And why won’t it stop snowing?!!

Set in Chicago in the midst of an unseasonable blizzard, “Experimenting with Katz” deals with issues of coming out, and it’s repercussions from family and friends, and, highlights the absurdity of those who use their ignorance about the LGBTQ community as a justification for their actions, while ultimately proving harmful to the very people they love.
