A PERFECT FIT BY LIA ROMEO

A Perfect Fit is the story of Nicole, a college sophomore involved in her first lesbian relationship.  Nicole’s exploration of her sexuality has caused her mother Janet to begin questioning her own marriage and her own assumptions.  Then there’s Janet’s friend Melinda, who’s newly divorced and wants nothing more than the stable family life that Janet has… or seems to.  A Perfect Fit asks hard questions about what it takes – and whether it’s possible – to be happy as a woman in the 21st century.

AYN/SISTER BY JENNIE FRANKS

BAR MAX

2412 E Colfax Ave, Denver, CO 80206

After decades of living in America, *Ayn Rand brings her Communist sister Nora to New York from Russia. Ayn rigidly conducts her life according to her book “The Virtue of Selfishness”, a philosophy at odds with her sister’s. It is a philosophy that has enabled Ayn to control everything and everybody. Too late Ayn realizes that all her beliefs and premises are under siege by her seemingly ditzy, baby sister who is the only one that can match her extraordinary wit and intellect. Between truth and lies, envy and love, Nora manages to hold Ayn’s marriage and legacy up for blackmail in a tight sisterly grip.

*Ayn Rand immigrated to the USA from Russia and is best known as the author of Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead. She is also known for her politics. Her followers include Paul Ryan and Alan Greenspan, who under her influence as Chairman of the Federal Reserve led the country to adopt her economic policies of ‘laissez-faire’capitalism. The result unfortunately was the economic meltdown of 2008.
