From Benjamin Scuglia: “As a playwright and passionate theatre artist, I am committed to bringing LGBTQ voices and the stories of my community to the stage. When I realized Theatre West, where I am a member, had never produced an LGBTQ event, and with 2019 L.A. Pride quickly approaching, I saw an opportunity to put queer stories on our stage and to showcase our writing and acting talent. ‘Love is a Journey’ examines, tests and ultimately celebrates the bonds between long-term friends, committed partners and even strangers meeting for the first time.”
