Forget what you learned in first grade: '1+1' is one of the most difficult problems on the planet, often taking a lifetime to solve. Just ask the characters in Happily Ever After, the dazzling new play by Cristina Colmena. Three couples of different ages, representing a lifetime of romantic struggles, try to puzzle out what it means to be "together." There are the young lovebirds connected by a powerful attraction yet destined to part; the cynical middle-aged "one night standers" failing to act on a promising encounter; and, finally, an older couple keeping up appearances despite their profound unhappiness. Hanna Bondarewska, artistic director and founder of the Ambassador Theater, directs the world premiere production of this compelling dark comedy. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
- "This production argues forcefully for theatres in Washington (and elsewhere) to continue to plumb the depths of Havel's work ... the strategy of doubling of the cast enables us to see more clearly the inner conflicts of the characters Havel treats so compassionately. May we never live in times where plays like this become a necessity; but may we always live in times when Havel's plays have an essential role in our ongoing examination of the human condition." --<a target="_blank" href="http://www.broadwayworld.com/washington-dc/article/BWW-Reviews-Ambassador-Theaters-PROTEST-Shows-Havels-Enduring-Lessons-20131122-page2">broadwayworld.com </a>
- "Humphries executes the innovation via simultaneous recitation at various points and through the continuation of dialogue begun by Stanek/Vanek in one study by Stankova/Vankova in the other. In some of the tenser, more reflective moments, the pairs cross paths and inhabit each other’s spaces. The intriguing treatment results in the feeling of watching two plays at once." --<a target="_blank" href="http://www.mdtheatreguide.com/2013/11/theater-review-protest-by-the-ambassador-theater-at-mead-theatre-lab/">mdtheatreguide.com</a>
