This Honors Project is a two-part exploration of the playwriting process though application. The script itself, Technically Love; an Exploration of Love, Technology and Same-Sex Marriage, tells the story of Max and Danny, a same-sex couple living in Minnesota in 2013. The play follows their yearlong journey of posting YouTube videos about their wedding planning process that coincides with Minnesota’s fight for marriage equality. The second part of the project is my paper On Technically Love: Discovering my voice, defining a world, delving in. The paper explains the process that I went through to write the play and gives an in depth view into the subjects, characters and historical context into which the play fits.
