An extraordinary new play by celebrated playwright Sarah Ruhl- a literate, funny and dark exploration into the incompatibility of traditional marriage with our sexual, animal roots.
Into the lives of two, "happily" married, middle-aged couples comes the remarkable Pip, a woman who lives, loves and sleeps with two male lovers and will only eat meat that she has killed herself. Responsive only to the instincts of her own, internal drummer, Pip's entrance onto the stage of the marrieds alters their understanding of life and relationships forever.
Sarah Ruhl has been awarded a MacArthur Fellowship and the PEN/Laura Pels Theater Award for a distinguished American playwright. Two of her plays have been finalists for the Pulitzer Prize and she received a nomination for Tony Award for Best Play.
"This new play is a subversive enchantment. It is part absurd domestic serio-comedy, part erotic magic realism, unflinching about taboos and about questioning that, just maybe, monogamy isn't enough"
