Brian and Stacey want a better life, the life they deserve. Raising two children has left them unsatisfied, running back and forth endlessly from work to Little League games. To advance their careers and penetrate the secretive ranks of "The Club," the beleaguered parents propose to ditch their little bundles of responsibility. With the aid of Brian's friend Marco acting as broker, they'll sell their kids to Albanian buyers.
"Mark Schultz's morality play THE GINGERBREAD HOUSE is a devilish comedy so brimstone-black as to make Jakob and Wilhelm Grimm's 'Hansel and Gretel' (to which the play alludes) sound like a limerick by Pat Boone…Schultz has created unforgettable characters with unforgivable behavior." —NYTheatre.com. "It's a darkly funny, sometimes chilling, comedy with shades of Edward Albee…Schultz's dialogue is whip-smart." —NY Daily News. "A comedy of horrors…The great strength of the tension-filled Gingerbread House is its dual depiction of civilization’s cozy veneer and slimy undercurrent." —BackStage
