BAKER’S DOZEN : 13 Gay Plays and Monologues
by Donald E. Baker
Baker’s Dozen is a collection of 13 short comedies and dramas for 1, 2, or 3 actors of various ages. From a drama in which the same-sex partner and the homophobic sister of a dying man meet for the first time, to a comedy about a man summoning a demon on a dating app; from a monologue in which a man recalls the sexual abuse he suffered when he was thirteen, to the gentle humor of an older gay couple bickering about aging and flirtatious baristas—these pieces—and more—demonstrate the great variety of the gay experience.
