Peter Gil, a legendary but retired playwright, has been whisked away to Mallorca to a fantasy life by his husband, tennis superstar Rafael Nadal. When he returns to New York to let his friends know just how successful his life has become, he finds them (actress Eva Patton and casting director John Ort, CSA) in disarray at a posh New York City restaurant. When Rafa himself comes to retrieve his love, Peter is transported back to Mallorca to do battle with the realities of Rafa’s life, family, and career.

"His characters are wild & wonderful. His dialogue is sharp-edged razor wit mingled with moments of zany mad cap physical comedy that had the audience in stitches.​"

I just keep looking at his smile,

that amazing smile, that makes me just want to kiss him from the moment

I wake up until the moment I go to sleep.


She’ll probably be back. We all...have our moments where we need to just break away.

Shake it off. Move to a faraway land and change everything. But we come back. We always come back.
