About this show

The Theory of Color tells the story of Elena, a worldly Italian-born artist who finds herself transplanted from New York City to a small, sleepy, remote island when her husband Tom accepts a new job as the town doctor. Arriving at the end of the summer vacation season, Tom and Elena soon meet several of the local "townies" including a priest with a penchant for the bottle, a schizophrenic who's convinced that the other townspeople are out to kill her, and a young man experiencing serious jitters about his upcoming wedding. While Tom is enthralled with the "normalcy" of small-town life, Elena is driven to distraction by the depression and unhappiness that she sees around her. As the long winter months drag by, she starts to realize that Tom may not be the man she thought he was.
