Postnuptials is a ménage à trois of love, secrets and drag, set in present day San Diego that begins shortly after newlyweds Kevin and Lillian cross that threshold of matrimony only to have their first night of wedded bliss degenerated into a nightmare of chaos and confusion when a female impersonator from the Las Vegas strip named Joey (a.k.a. Amber Star) arrives at their apartment with the intent of bringing closure with his husband who jilted him the morning after their impromptu wedding in The Little Chapel on the Strip. When the news that Kevin is a homosexual bigamist married to a drag queen reaches the wedding party still at the reception at the Hotel del Coronado; in-laws, a sibling maid of honor, a drunken best man, and a dim-witted ex-fiance join the fray that culminates into a surprise ending while it explores thematic concerns of gay marriage, heterosexual infidelity, the extent of unconditional love, and an individual’s quest to challenge parental conditioning, laid down in childhood that at times may inhibit an adult’s own choices in life, and perhaps the meeting of true minds and hearts in a search for love.
