Domesticated is described as follows: "Politician Bill Pulver faces the cameras to stumble his way through a carefully crafted apology as his wife Judy stands stoically behind him…but what is she REALLY thinking? We are about to find out in Bruce Norris's wickedly funny, unpredictable play about a marriage burst apart by a sex scandal. Domesticated is a scathing, wildly entertaining play that investigates gender politics, modern marriage and the sexual mysteries of the animal kingdom."
