Description

Settings Of Play - PART ONE: is set in the living area of a Honeymoon suite in a Niagara Falls hotel; a mid-level affair. The “stain” in the carpet should be indicated by something resembling the chalk outline of a body. Probably white tape, but whatever is easiest. But at the very least it should be vaguely body-shaped, enough to recognize.

PART TWO: is set in three different areas of in a carnival along the Niagara Falls boardwalk. The only element necessary on stage is a single white canvas, nothing too large, where simple shadow images are specified to project location. And some strand lights.

Newlyweds Jack and Avery Perch want to enjoy their kitschy Niagara Falls honeymoon, but doubts about their speedy nuptials, the unfortunate history of their room, and the opera-singing concierge aren't helping. Meanwhile down on the boardwalk, a woman who might have been Avery is living something that might have been Avery's unmarried life against the backdrop of rickety carnival rides and fortune tellers. When they collide, both women see their lives flash before their eyes in this magical romantic comedy about the choices we make in love and the things we have to leave behind.
