This play was excellent, especially for a premiere. the fact that the playwright lives in DC area makes it even more special.
The issue of religion in relationships is more timely than ever and hasn't really been tackled in theater. Some scenes were very funnny and others were poignant. Evangelical Christianiity, through experiences of individuals, was represented in a very non-judgmental way.
Acting and directing were terrific.
Let's hope that this play will be produced again soon.
By Renee Calarco
Directed by Joe Calarco
Featuring Will Gartshore, Kimberly Gilbert, Liz Mamana, Joseph Thornhill and Chris Stezin.
Mo and Brian are a picture-perfect DC couple: they’re smart, they’re witty, and they have a beautifully remodeled kitchen. But when Mo’s best friend Patti announces she’s found Jesus and is putting her own career on hold, Mo must take a closer look at the harder truths surrounding her own marriage. A brand new comedy about relationships, faith and the fine line between compromise and regret.
This production is not recommended for audiences under age 17 due to explicit sexual content.
