Charting the intersections of two lives over the course of 30 years, the manipulations of their relationship, and the cumulative damage of the wounds inflicted, intimacy may never have looked so familiar.
“Our season opener comes from a very impressive playwright who has so cleverly captured our ability to love and how it relates to our childhood. How those early experiences inform our behavior and lack of ability for intimacy in our adult relationships. It‚Äôs a funny-serious subject, so audiences can have a good time laughing while taking a very thought-provoking journey,” says Artistic Director John Perrin Flynn
