Gar can’t decide between the man who plays games and the man on one knee with a ring. In fact, Gar can’t decide on anything because every choice seems like a compromise. Everyone wants answers but nothing lives up to the image he has in his head. Facades start crumbling as his world implodes around him but Gar just wants to dance with his friends.

This Much (or An Act of Violence Towards the Institution of Marriage) is a play about how we define ourselves; through objects, clothes, traditions, and other people.
