WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Act 1: We enter the kitchen of Stewart and Susan Grant in their Rogers Park home on an April morning, 1970. Though not just any April morning, it's Earth Day. And Susan, along with preparing the fresh squeezed orange juice and eggs, is preparing to march downtown for an environmental protest. While daughter Lucy thinks this is quite groovy, tight-laced husband Stewart is not of the same mind.
Act 2: Now 2005, we return to the same Rogers Park kitchen, now belonging to Lucy and her husband Jeremy. But roles are reversed. Stay-at-home dad Jeremy is cooking veggie frittatas and high powered lawyer Lucy checks emails, fields phone calls and reads the morning paper. Set in Chicago and with a 2006 Chicago debut, Half and Half is "a smart, telling comedy about married life… filled with wit and biting humor" (ChicagoCritic.com).
