First comes love, then comes marriage counseling. Two-time winner of The Moth's GrandSLAM, James Braly returns to Ars Nova with Life in a Marital Institution, his hilarious dissection of what 13 couples counselors have called a passionate, bi-polar relationship. With one of New York City's sharpest wits, Braly dives head first into a tale of attraction, repulsion, reproduction, death, and the afterlife. It's 20 years of monogamy in one terrifying evening. Hal Brooke, the acclaimed director of Thom Pain (Based on Nothing), directs.
