    About the play: A couple in their seventies urgently culls through old photographs and letters, contesting each other’s memory of a special romance. The floor is strewn with scissored and shredded photographs, until visited by the memory of a central figure from their youth, each comes to better understand and accept the nature of memory, love, and loyalty. So nice!

    The playwright’s inspiration:
    I wrote this play to show how secrets affect a marriage. When you reveal a secret, it can challenge or affirm the myths and memories central to the other person’s happiness and sense of self. Affirming each other’s memories can be the key to a happy marriage. -Stephen Sossaman
