    What they say:
    Truly hilarious not because of an absurd premise, but because it is so real. Anybody who has ever been in a long-term relationship has had this conversation. Eric Weil has created something that we all can identify with, and has done it in a truly fun piece of comedic writing.” – P. Barton, Actor

    A hilarious play that explores the complexities of marriage through asking that age-old question: “What’s for dinner?” – W. Zangarine, Actor

    A clever ‘slice of life play’ in which the comedy flows effortlessly” – M. Weems, Artistic Director
