Josh and Alex are a married couple in an open relationship. But after young Darius shares their bed for a night, a new intimate connection begins to form, and all three men must come head to head with one another’s notions of love, intimacy, and commitment.
Premiering in the UK after a multiple-extended hit run Off-Broadway, Afterglow is a ‘steamy stripped-down look at gay intimacy’ (Huffington Post).
The climax is just the beginning…
