A racy bedroom farce about gay couples and strange bedfellows.  

Peter Stern is turning 50 and not happy. His company is being swallowed by a conservative foreign investor.  Peter’s hubbie Elliot is marketing a sports drink with side effects—including extreme horniness.   Their friends are completely self-absorbed and now a hunky construction worker is hitting on his husband. Everyone has issues that become intensified once they all drink Mega Voltage! 

Company Statement:

VanderHart Productions is an independent production company dedicated to the creation of LGBTQ+ content for stage and screen.  We have produced seven successful stage productions in Southern California including “Honey I’m Home” and “With Friends Like These…” and several feature films including the cult favorite “Homewrecker” and the romantic comedy “Open: breaking the rules”.  Our goal is to create entertaining, inclusive, and positive LGBTQ+ entertainment.
