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.
"There's humor, there's pathos, but mostly there's yearning throughout." - The Rocky Mountain News "Actors Theatre audiences have come to count on playwright Jane Martin... for an undeniably superior play. She's done it again with Jack and Jill. Martin has delivered another hit." - The Louisville Courier Journal
