Even now Olear still hasnt told some of his family members that hes gay, and in his play, Still Untitled, the main character, played by Olear himself, struggles with that and other gay issues. While putting his life into a play hasnt solved all his problems, the project has afforded Olear some opportunity for reflection. Working on this I think I am starting to come to terms with the things that happen every day, says Olear. Life happens to all of us. How we deal with it is another story.
