Ruth and Jack, both in their mid-thirties, believe themselves perfectly suited to each other. But when Ruth suddenly mentions marriage, a subtle but ominous change is felt in their relationship. The mood at first is light-hearted and filled with brightly humorous lines, but later, no holds are barred, and the irreconcilable differences that were largely sublimated in the beginning now burst forth in full fury, leading to a monumental explosion and, apparently, Ruth and Jack’s acceptance of the sobering truth that there is more that divides than unites them.
The cast includes Caitlin Morrison as Ruth and Ryan Ernst as Jack. Harley Miah is lighting designer and Sydnee Dombrowski is stage manager.
David Ives is perhaps best known for his evening of one-act plays, All in the Timing, and for his drama Venus in Fur, which was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Play. A former Guggenheim Fellow in playwriting and a graduate of The Yale School of Drama, he lives in New York City.
