From the author of Exit the Body and Out of Sight . . . Out of Murder comes a funny, refreshing and delightful romantic comedy which opens with the Kittridges saying simultaneously, "I want a divorce!" Both are conceited and rightly so: Colin is a successful humor columnist and Frances an equally successful romance novelist. There is rivalry between them and although they are still in love, each is too stubborn to give an inch. Stage right features an area into which they wander to play other scenes and other times. Here hilarious differences emerge as each remembers a different version of their meeting and the marriage proposal and each pictures a different future. They confide in Sylvia, their mutual agent, and in Bert, a financier who hears Colin's troubles at the club. The Kittridges played matchmaker for this couple whose help only complicates matters. Frances and Colin's attempts to divide their belongings as they continue to live in the same apartment for a six month waiting period are paralleled in a book Frances is writing called 'How to Survive a Marriage'. Startling revelations bring about a warm and mirthful happy ending.

This was the play I chose to submit to my theater company for my first time as solo director. It is easily staged, has wonderfully witty dialogue and the "black box" division of the set allowing for the performance of the "flashback" elements is a lot of fun to play with.
The characters are likable and the plot is easy to relate to. We successfully staged this on a 14.5 by 17.5 foot stage, so the set really is easy to manage.
I feel this is an excellent choice for little theater and community groups.
