Sometimes, divorce is the only way to communicate after 60 years of marriage.
The Seeing Place Theater, known for its intensely intimate ensemble work, embarks on a World Premiere of rare proportions - an elderly love story of immigrants finding the true meaning of the American Dream.
Married life hasn't been the best for the Turners since they left Scotland in 1951. On the eve of their 60th anniversary, Addie deserts their Brooklyn home while William is running errands. After their wayward son moves her into the living room of their alcoholic daughter's apartment, she drains the joint bank account, hires the best lawyer she can find, and pays him to be her shrink. She even serves divorce papers on Thanksgiving...for effect. The kids do their best to negotiate hunger strikes, restraining orders, and the rapidly diminishing family fortune - while William does everything he can to sabotage the court proceedings and save his marriage. Scotch Kiss is a black-comedic romance about a family learning, for the first time, how to appreciate one another.
Scotch Kiss was inspired by true events and developed through improvisation by The Seeing Place Ensemble.
