 About the show:  During the celebration of a Detroit Lions Super Bowl victory, Gene Walsh (Ben Dicke) impulsively proposes marriage to the love of his life, Marisa (Rachel Turner). When she joyously accepts, he tumbles over the coffee table, breaking his leg. Gene’s clumsiness and a tiny bit of oyster DNA precipitate a comical cascade of twists that turn the happy couple's future upside down and inside out.  Love may be blind, but this is ridiculous.
[R] Rating: This comedy contains themes of homosexuality and gender identity. Characters use frank sexual language. The Detroit Lions are depicted as being good at football.  NOTE: Not intended for young audiences.
 "Consider the Oyster will definitely get the gears in your head turning after tickling your funny bone and touching your heart”.  – Heritage Media
PRODUCTION STAFF –  Stage management by Lindsay Sullivan, Set Design by Shaun Albrechtson, Lighting Design by Shannon McKinney, Costumes by Nicole Harrison and Sound Design by El Armstrong.
