Adam (Eric Larson) and Jan (Olga Konstantulakis) are alone together for the first time in almost 10 years. Without the buffer of their nine-year-old son (who is away at his first-ever sleepover), this smoothly scripted multi-layered play reveals how closely love and hate can be linked in marriage … how with each problem experienced as parents, each subsequent layer that’s revealed shows yet another problem in their marriage. The play is an incisive close-up of the emotional battleground of contemporary relationships and the lengths to which a couple will go to save it.

"Konstantulakis and Larson can not be commended enough for their acting work. Aided by Shane Stevens’ sensitive and skilled direction, they command the stage and hold us in their magical spell from beginning to end."

"The clash between these two misfortunate individuals is one of those horrid, emotionally draining events that take place all too frequently between unhappy spouses and partners. But that authenticity doesn’t make this drama any more engaging....."
