The Complete First Season and Finale Premiere of The Benefits of Gusbandry

Join us tonight as we “binge watch” the complete first season of Portland filmmaker Alicia J Rose’s new web series. At her debaucherous 40th birthday party, serial relationship-killer Jackie meets handsome and charming River. Their ensuing adventures in self-medication, late-blooming, and questionable judgment lead them to discover a raucous new kind of “significant otherness.” Co-written by Rose and comedic powerhouse Courtenay Hameister, the debut season covers topics such as the “new middle age”, the perils of gay/straight internet dating, de-closeting, glory holes, gaybies, legal weed, and more. “With a mordant wit and natural, lived-in performances, it combines the easygoing charm of shows like Master of None with the dark humor and outsized personality of You’re the Worst.”—A.V. Club.

A reception will be held starting at 7pm prior to the screening with pizza from Hotlips and wine from Sokol Blosser!
