Every detail, from Walt Spangler’s immaculately designed stage to Marcela Lorca’s impressive movement coaching, is precise, making the play deeply personal and real—more an extension of life than a fictional situation.
From Pulitzer Prize-winner Donald Margulies comes a moving and often hilarious story of relationships, mid-life crisis and the ties of friendship. After barely surviving a bomb blast in Iraq, photojournalist Sarah Goodwin finds herself caught in a tug-of-war between her exhilarating career and the contentment of family life. Returning home into the care of her long-time lover James, Sarah’s caught off guard by his desire for family and by the simple domestic life pursued by Richard, her editor, and his much younger girlfriend Mandy.
