Princess Grace

Winner! 2003 Princess Grace Award for Playwriting

Connie and Jonas are a successful industry couple. Their friends Suzanne, a struggling painter, and Matt, a struggling musician, can't afford to fix the roof. But stay tuned because in this funny, poignant and always truthful new play, lives can change in a heartbeat, and things aren't necessarily what they seem.

In What They Have, as in "Six Feet Under," happiness is fleeting and illusory and things are seldom what they seem. A complex and constantly morphing landscape of dissatisfactions links all four characters. They're motivated by the need for creative fulfillment, money and the ultimate sense of accomplishment: a child. Unrequited dreams – and dreams achieved that turn out to be nightmares – shift the ground under everyone's feet.
