May 21 at 2:30 p.m.
This dark comedy brings us Carmichael, who’s discovered that his wife of 22 years has just had sexual relations with another man. Pushed to his limits, he hires Diggery, a wannabe thug, to kill him in front of his supposedly cheating wife, Mariah. However, Diggery shows up an hour early to this low-key execution, causing Carmichael to converse with his killer until his wife returns home from work. The grey areas of relationships, stereotypes, and traditional thinking are explored in this play looking at the wonders of love, and the evil it forces us to hide in ourselves.
