In 1992, novelist Brian Francis placed a personals ad in the newspaper. He received a number of responses but there were 13 letters he never responded to. Now, 26 years later, Brian has written replies to those letters. Featuring a cast of 13 local queer actors, Box 4901 is a hilarious, strange, sweet, and awkward look back at how gay men used to connect.
