It was a hot property in the UK (2009 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy).
And a hot property on Broadway (2009 Tony Awards for Best Play, Actor and Director).
Now it’s a hot property nationwide.
And On The Verge is proud to present it for the first time in Kentucky.
Two well-to-do couples meet to resolve a playground dispute between their children
like civilized adults. The meeting begins amiably enough, but tempers and tolerance fray, jackets are shed, rum replaces coffee, fault lines in marriages open up, alliances shift and all hell gradually breaks loose. By the end of the evening, one mother’s lofty claim that “there is such a thing as the art of coexistence” has come hilariously and intriguingly into question
But there’s a twist to this production. The play is double cast. And the combination of couples changes constantly. Lisa Thomas Paul Thomas, Allie Darden, Bob Singleton, Adam Luckey, Kim Dixon and Tiffiney Baker star. Directed by Ave Lawyer
