Adapted from John Gray's iconic book, this one-man show version of Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus builds on the success of the all-time best-selling relationship guide. Through a fusion of theater and stand-up, actor-comedian Peter Story gives his own hilarious take on the age-old battle of the sexes, including his initial resistance to the book and how his feelings changed after he met the author. Story shares his newfound knowledge of how men and women communicate -- or miscommunicate -- through a series of vignettes covering everything from dating and marriage to the goings-on in the bedroom.
