Torch Song Trilogy archiveTorch Song Trilogy is three interconnected plays on gay life and relationships. The plays focus on the one thing that all people have in common, gay or straight...relationships. Arnold is searching for that elusive perfect love, and in him and the other characters we see our own relationships with our families, lovers and ex-lovers. Although most of the characters are gay, what we understand at the end is that sexuality is unimportant, and we are all simply human.
