About the Play:

Under Wraps is a full-length drama by Robert Chafe. Mark is a nervous gay with a crush on a good-looking stranger. David is probably heterosexual but friendly enough toward Mark to keep him both interested and in a perpetual state of confusion. Under Wraps is a lyrical and laugh-out-load story of hopeless love and hard-won acceptance.

Under Wraps is about two men who are intensely attracted. The moment Mark meets David his world is thrown off balance. Who could have predicted finding love in a furniture store, or finding it with an unemployed lifeguard? But despite their immediate connection, Mark isn't sure if David is gay. Mark isn't even sure if Mark is gay. As he falls deeper in love, Mark works desperately to make David nothing more than a friend and to make that enough. Filled with hopeful exhilaration and devastating missed opportunities, Under Wraps nimbly tracks one man's tumultuous quest to finally love himself and let it all out.

Under Wraps premiered in 1997 at the historic LSPU Hall (so named as it was formerly owned by the Longshoremen's Protective Union) in the heart of downtown St. John's, Newfoundland. It played to three sold out runs before touring to Halifax, Calgary, Banff, and Vancouver.
