  • Max is living the typical millennial life. She lives in the city in a tiny apartment with her gay roommate, Adam. She has a blog. But she gets paid to write the blog so that makes it better than a normal blog. But she still has to have a day job because the cost of living is skyrocketing.

    One day she's in her favorite coffee shop when she runs into Nate. We all have a Nate. Nate is the relationship that almost happened, and leaves you wondering "what if?" well into your old age. Turns out, Nate thought Max was gay. Because she wears flannel. And likes hockey. And goes by Max. You know, things that are only allowed to raging lesbians. She even gets set up with Nate's roommate, Jenna. But Jenna has a plan. She just got out of a serious relationship (don't ask her about it) and wants to be alone. So, she's going to be Max's reverse beard! They'll pretend to date, Nate will get to know Max better, and he'll fall madly in love with her. Jenna gets to be single, Max gets closer to Nate, Adam gets to eats a lot of popcorn. It's foolproof! Right?

    A modern queer update of the "mistaken identity comedy", (Think Parent Trap, While You Were Sleeping, Every Shakespearean comedy ever) Missed Opportunities examines the one thing those stories never do - the consequences. (Don't worry, this is still a comedy.)
