Winner! 1997 American Theatre Critics Association Award, Best New Play
With her signature offbeat humor and fierce passion, the author of Keely and Du and other well known plays examines the many labors of love in a modern comedy of manners. While most romances focus on the search for Mr. or Ms. Right, Jack and Jill explores what happens after two people find the right fit. From an awkward courtship to marital bliss and beyond, the author playfully portrays the hard work of love that requires balancing intimacy with commitment, self discovery, and personal change.
