Playwright Larry Meyers was inspired to write his new play, Geishas' Peculiar DNA, after hearing about a gay couple in Connecticut who can't get their Vermont civil union dissolved, reports the New York Post's Page Six. The state of Vermont won't grant a dissolution since the men don't live there, and Connecticut won't because that state doesn't recognize the civil union in the first place. "Ibsen wrote A Doll's House when he read about a woman walking out on her husband and kids," said Meyers. "And Peter Shaffer wrote Equus based on a one-sentence item."
