Together they create an actual, lasting structure a work of art which ultimately helps them to understand and move on.

We learn that Veronica, who at first believes she is a lesbian, is actually a man trapped in a womans body. After much deliberation, Veronica chooses surgery and becomes Homer. Homer, however, is once again trapped when his mother calls with an invitation to her upcoming wedding.

Homer attends the ceremony dressed as Veronica, where he realizes the full impact of denial-of-self that resulted in his dressing up. Walking home, Homer is attacked by two men who assume he is a woman. As the attack progresses, the attackers discover Homer is a man and brutally kill him.

The participants of the memorial service begin to comprehend their general complicity as well as their specific innocence in the machinations that led to Homers death. The play becomes a larger comment on our attitudes toward change, selfhood and the boundaries of love.
