In the middle of a river and long past the middle of their relationship, Kendra and Betty are struggling with where their life together will go next. On a muggy summer evening somewhere down in the Alabama Delta, the two women troll the flats looking for redfish. As tensions flare over disagreements, past infidelities, life-choices, and job struggles, the couple must grapple with whether they can truly overcome the space between them. THE GULF won the Lambda Literary Award for LGBTQ Drama, the David Calicchio American Playwright Prize, and the Samuel French Off Off Broadway Festival.
