Love! Valour! Compassion!
Gregory invites seven friends to spend the summer at his large, secluded 19th-century home in upstate New York: Bobby, Gregory’s blind significant other; Art and Perry, two yuppies; John, a dour expatriate Briton; Ramon, John’s companion; and James, a cheerful soul.
This is Terrence McNally adaptation of his Tony-winning Broadway play staring Jason Alexander, Stephen Bogardus, Randy Becker, John Glover, and John Benjamin Hickey, and directed by Joe Mantello.

“I chose Love! Valour! Compassion! to honor the recent passing of Tony award winning playwright Terrance McNally. Terrance was born right here in St. Petersburg, FL and was recently honored with a plaque at his childhood home in Treasure Island/Sunset Beach. The film brought together the majority of the actors from his Tony-winning play with the notable change of Jason Alexander (of Seinfeld fame) to replace Nathan Lane as the broadway-loving Buzz. The film’s central theme of chosen family has always resonated with me and I too have a group of lifelong friends I consider family. Please join me as we visit the lake house for one more summer season.” — David Gonzalez
