This bittersweet comedy about contemporary relationships consists of two one acts. At Home finds Paul and Carol, a perfect couple, squabbling as they prepare dinner for themselves and another couple who are on their way over. We are constantly thrown off balance, never knowing for sure if the marriage is in trouble or their squabbling is just the normal banter of a marriage. They talk about splitting up but are they serious? Abroad is about the after effects of the happy couple's decision to split up. In a series of vignettes, Paul and Carol are seen separately dealing with their friends' awkward attempts to understand the why and wherefore as they try to help them over the shock of being on their own. Paul and Carol do not appear together until the end, when Carol is moving out. Both are at loose ends: they only feel but do not understand why it is time to split. At Home and Abroad can be presented in either order: if you like straight lines from beginning to end, do At Home as Act 1. If you are more adventurous, perform the acts in the author's preferred order, Abroad then At Home and Split becomes "a La Ronde for today, a flourishing harvest of insights about the quest for continuity in relationships."N.Y.
