Unnecessary Headaches

Authored by Brian Scott Mednick

Harvey and Betty Sugarman seemed to have a good life. They were both successful in their careers - he a lawyer, she a journalist - and lived comfortably in Manhattan's Stuyvesant Town. Most importantly, they took pride in having a bright son in college named Daniel. But just as some underlying secrets are about to be revealed, the Sugarmans' world changes when Betty is diagnosed with ovarian cancer.

The Sugarman men try their best to be strong as Daniel struggles to hide his homosexuality from his parents and Harvey tries to put his dream of a second career as a writer of Broadway musicals on hold.

Set against the backdrop of modern day New York City, "Unnecessary Headaches" is a poignant story of a family trying to live their lives despite the brutal realities that stand in their way.
