Four flawed but likeable lower-middle-class New Yorkers interact in a touching and warmhearted play about learning how to stay afloat in the deep water of day-to-day living. Laced with cooking classes, swimming lessons, and a smorgasbord of illegal drugs, Jack Goes Boating is a story of date panic, marital meltdown, betrayal, and the prevailing grace of the human spirit.
"An immensely likable play [that] exudes a wry compassion." - The New York Times
Endearing romantic comedy about a married couple and the social-misfit friends they fix up. Witty and knowing and all heart." - Variety
"Glides effortlessly from the shallow end of the emotional pool to the deep end." - Theatremania.com
Jack Goes Boating premiered off-Broadway in 2007 at the LABrynth Theatre Company. It was directed by Peter Dubois.
