I thought the acting was good but to spend $35 dollars a person on a "fair" play that lasts one hour and fifteen minutes is insane.

This play lacked depth, plus it seemed to go in circles. The actors were engaging, however there are much better plays in Chicago.

Great script, a story that every married couple could relate to! The actors gave a very convincing performance. I would see it again.

Description

Kate and Jake were married for more than 20 years. Now, recently widowed and faced with the daunting prospect of dating for the first time in decades, the memories of her marriage—some laughter and passion-filled, others frustration-ridden—surround Kate as she reevaluates her choices in this new chapter in her life. Botanic Garden offers a funny and refreshingly unsentimental look at loss, questioning our collective belief that “moving on” is the best medicine.

By Todd Logan

Directed by Olympia Dukakis

Starring veteran Chicago actors Jim Leaming and Carmen Roman
