The film follows the fast-paced work routine of a stage manager as he prepares performers and crew for the opening night of a show. There are both funny and poignant moments. Sex and romance are ever-present issues.

While a conventional boy-girl love affair is the prime focus, there’s a generous mix of sexual and racial variety to enjoy.

Opening Night will be available in the US as a DVD from Wolfe Video 1 August 2017.

While it’s increasingly common for two women and even two men to bring children into the world and raise them in loving same-sex households, the male couple in this situation is assisted by a surrogate mother who also serves as the bridge between two households, one straight and the other gay.

A married woman with three children of her own volunteers to give birth to another two for her gay best friend and his Italian partner. This marvelous film covers three years before, during, and after the second child is born.

It will screen one-time only on Sunday 6 August 2017 at the New Parkway in Oakland during the upcoming San Francisco Jewish Film Festival 37.
