WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Suitcase Under the Bed, so named for the place where all of playwright Teresa Deevy's writing was stored for decades, features four short plays, three of which are receiving their world premieres with this production. Another name for this evening of short plays might be Three Proposals and a Breakup. Each of these four plays casts an unsentimental eye on the idea of marriage. One of them is even set against the backdrop of a wedding: "I was thinking of my marriage day when I was looking at them two," says Mrs. Marks in The King of Spain's Daughter. "It is a thought would sadden anyone."
