The Devil Drinks Cava

A queer comedy-drama exploring who we present ourselves as and the ‘bubbly’ delicious consequences our actions have on those around us.

Under the rising moonlight in Traquair Maze, aspiring 30 year old ‘DJ Nate-O’ (or Nathan), waits for his extremely ambitious but modest wedding planner girlfriend of ten+ plus years, Annie, so he can finally pop that big ole’ question himself.

However, when Emile arrives searching for his latest wedding hook-up (always the groomsman and never the groom), a series of hidden truths are revealed which lead all three to questions who they want to be, how they want to live, and the legacy they want to leave behind.
