The play contains adult language and content. Ticket prices range from $20.50 to $46 with special discounts for students, seniors, teachers, members of the military and groups. For more information or to make reservations call (734) 433-7673 or go to www.purplerosetheatre.org.

In this dark comedy by Yasmina Reza and translated by Christopher Hampton, a playground clash between 11-year old boys throws together two sets of parents for a meeting to resolve the dispute; a civilized get-together that turns swiftly and hilariously into a battle pitting couple against couple, husbands against wives, spouse against spouse.

The cast features Resident Artists Michelle Mountain (Grass Lake) and Rusty Mewha (Plymouth), Kate Thomsen (Portage), and PRTC newcomer Paul Stroili (Chicago, IL). Set design is by Bart Bauer, properties by Danna Segrest, costumes by Shelby Newport, lighting by Dana White and sound by Tom Whalen. Angie Ferrante is the stage manager.
