Perfect Arrangement, a new play by Atlanta playwright and screenwriter Topher Payne, depicts two couples who devise a clever plan to stay one step ahead of the Lavender Scare in 1950s Washington, D.C. When two U.S. State Department employees — who happen to be gay — get tasked with identifying sexual deviants within their ranks, they find a creative solution to covering their own orientation. How? Marry each other’s partners. Inspired by a true story.
