This dark comedy is about a marital triangle in which the wife tries to save the marriage, the husband seeks self understanding and the waif like mistress craves attention. Originally produced by the Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago to glowing reviews, My Thing of Love made its way to Broadway. Often hilarious, the play returns in the end to the serious issue of infidelity and its effect on a family.

"Churns with passionate energy...Has a screwball passion that is genuinely theatrical." - The Chicago Sun Times
