Written and directed by award winning playwright Kit Williamson, “EastSiders” explores the aftermath of infidelity on a gay couple in Silverlake, CA.
When Cal (Kit Williamson) finds out Thom (Van Hansis) has been cheating on him with Jeremy (Matthew McKelligon), their relationship is turned upside down. Will the lies tear them apart or are they just stubborn enough to stay together forever?
Kit Williamson, the writer/director/star of the series, began his career on Broadway, acting in the Tony-Nominated revival of “Talk Radio.” Most recently, he appeared in the indie film “Best Friends Forever” which is slated to premiere at Slamdance this spring.
“I wanted to create a gay couple with the same complexity and flaws straight characters are allotted. The way gay couples are depicted is often frustrating to me. There’s a huge spectrum of lifestyles and experiences within the gay community and I wanted to explore a kind of relationship that isn’t often represented.” – Kit Williamson
