Amy Herzog's latest play follows a young, hip expat couple living in Belleville, a trendy Parisian neighborhood. But beneath the surface of Zack and Abby's enviable life, unrest simmers. When Abby returns home early one afternoon, she uncovers a few seemingly inconsequential surprises. These surprises continue to multiply -- as the stakes quietly but inexorably rise -- until the survival of everything and everyone teeters on the brink.
