Rincón in David L. Kimple's MMF at FringeNYC.
Here is how it is billed: “When Dean, Jane and Michael's polyamorous relationship comes to an end, the trio is forced to deal with the consequences of love in a nontraditional relationship. MMF explores the realities of love, need, want and people who don't know the difference."
MMF, which has received readings from Gold Lame' Inc. (at The Barrow Group) and ArtEffects Theatre Company — as well as workshops directed by Giselle Ty in Cambridge, MA, and NYC — will be presented by Goldfish Memory Productions....
The Kraine Theater is located at 85 E. 4th Street (between 2nd and 3rd Avenues). For tickets, visit FringeNYC.org. For more information, visit GoldfishMemoryProductions.com.

7 Shows You Should See at the 2014 New York International Fringe Festival
Breaking up is hard to do, especially when you have to do it with more than one person. David L. Kimple's MMF (as in male-male-female) imagines the dissolution of Dean, Michael, and Jane's polyamorous relationship. With same-sex unions becoming positively unremarkable, throuples (committed relationships of three individuals) are just now peeking out of the closet, ready to scandalize your small-minded aunt in new and exciting ways. Go see this show so you have something interesting to talk about over Thanksgiving dinner this year.
While we're on fiction: The new novel Polyamorous Love Song by Jacob Wren is not about polyamory, in case you were wondering. (A newspaper review.)
On a different note: if Polyamory in the News goes down with a message from Google Blogger that this site is unavailable, write me right away at alan7388 (at) gmail.com. It's happened twice now, and I can bring it back up just by logging in to the Google Blogger editor and looking at it there. Anyone know what's going on? (And yes I have backups.)
