WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
This event is a staged reading featuring Stephanie Linas and Daniel Schwait. Jack and Ruth, a seemingly perfect match, are suddenly faced with the question of marriage. In this smart and spirited play by David Ives, serious differences, previously swept under the rug, are now forced into the light. She is culturally Jewish, and her parents reject her dating outside the faith; he is a lapsed Catholic who scorns organized religion. She enjoys the finer things in life, while he is happy to live with little means. She wants to get married and have a family. He has been married before and vows never to be again. They make their cases with razor-sharp wit and poignant pleas, but is staying together the right thing to do?
