Set on an average Friday night in suburbia that marks a turning point for couples all over town, the assortment of nine rapid-fire short plays combine whimsy, poignancy and heartbreak in an ode to the messiness of love.
“Each of the nine plays are their own microcosm that fits uniquely into the universe created when they all come together,” says Woodworth. “One moment you may find yourself laughing at their foibles and the next you ache with empathy for their anguish.”
Performances run Thursday, Oct. 18 and Friday, Oct. 19 at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday, Oct. 20 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., in the McDonald Theatre at the Gearan Center for the Performing Arts.
