Set in late 1800's Germany, Spring Awakening is about three teenagers: A girl named Wendla, the atheist Melchior, and Melchior's best friend, Moritz. Each teenager goes through different experience, but they all question their sexuality and if what they are feeling is okay. A tragic love story, Spring Awakening is about how the young generation will not succumb to the ideology of the older generation!
Sex of the Baby is about an interracial gay couple, Michael and Daniel, trying to find a surrogate mother. Things get a bit tangled when Daniel impregnates the surrogate but Michael was the donor. Things get even more crazy when that surrogate's boyfriend decides he’s in love with Daniel. It's a progressive dark comedy that juggles the gravity of commitment with being able to find your role in the world, the layers of sexual orientation, race politics and debates about the ethics of threesomes.
