Marin Theatre Company presents Life X 3, an esoteric comedy from French playwright Yasmina Reza, the author of the international mega-hit Art, as its second production of the current season. The play revolves around the ensuing dramas that occur when a couple turns up at the right house - on the wrong night - for a dinner party.
Henry (Dan Hiatt) plays an astrophysicist married to somewhat manipulative Sonia (Delia MacDougall). What they think is going to be a quiet night with their child, turns upside down when Henry's distinguished colleague Hubert (Warren Keith) and his ditzy wife Ines (Julia Brothers) show up for dinner. There's no food in the house, but after drinking plenty of Sancerre, the evening degenerates quickly into barbs and rejoinders and ample flirtation. But then, Reza decides to rewind the action, and create slight variations (a run in the stockings, a screaming child that won't go to bed) that become a catalyst resulting in three completely different conclusions. MTC veteran Amy Glazer directs.
There are matinees on Wednesday, November 24 and Thursday December 2 at 1PM and Saturdays, November 20 and December 11 at 2PM.
