Get a first look in the video below!
Two eleven year old boys, a stick and some broken teeth are the catalyst in this tale of two families. An innocent squabble over a playground incident brings together parents in hopes of resolving the conflict. Diplomacy and niceties among adults soon deteriorates into a childish evening of name-calling, tears and tantrums. This comedic play will take audiences on an entertaining journey from civil discussion to an all-out brawl between two couples.
Veronica, a writer, and Michael, a company wholesaler, are parents to Henry.
Annette, a wealth manager, and Alan, a lawyer, are parents to Benjamin. The two couples meet to discuss the misdemeanors of their sons. The evening begins quite amicably with the four parents intending to resolve the situation diplomatically. However, as their hopes for this begin to splinter and disillusionment sets in,the evening deteriorates from one of mild unease and discomfort, into a deluge of accusations, recriminations, jealousy and rage. There is drinking, fighting and destruction of some rather lovely tulips. Boys will be boys, but can the grown-ups be grown up enough to resolve their differences without losing sight of right and wrong?
Artistic Director Hunter Foster has assembled a cast of performers who will all make their Redhouse debuts. Acting Veterans Jennifer Cody who will star as Annette and Jeremy Kushnier as Alan both bring years of Broadway experience to the Redhouse stage. They will be joined by actress Josie DeVincenzo as Veronica and playing her husband Michael is actor Sky Seals.
