WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Is marriage meant to last a lifetime? Honor and George have been together for 32 years, but when a young and seductive journalist enters their lives, the sacred bond that held this couple together for all those years begins to unravel at an alarming speed. Honour was widely commended by critics and audiences alike in Australia, England and on Broadway for its brutally honest evaluation of what it means to be both in and suddenly out of a long-term relationship. Murray-Smith isn't afraid to put marriage under the microscope in order to ask the hard questions: is it right to sacrifice your individuality for the good of a spouse? Can fidelity work? What's really behind a mid-life crisis? This exquisitely crafted script immerses us in a rich emotional landscape of both yearning and suffering--without destroying our sense of hope. This tight, timely drama engages the audience in the larger truths about commitment, desire and surrender as it lays bare our most intimate institution. Honour, written by Joanna Murray-Smith, is directed by Tony Taccone.
