What defines something as “real”? Is it possible to distinguish between illusion, reality, and lies?
Experience the deeply moving exploration of the human experience and the elusive nature of married life in the tradition of Eastern European theatre.
Love and relationships take center stage in our new, thought-provoking play, as we follow the stories of Denny, Sandra, Albert, and Margaret – two couples whose lives are intertwined in a tapestry of emotion and illusion. As the actors guide you through their personal stories, you’ll be left wondering: what is real and what is just an illusion? This production serves as a philosophical fable, exploring the elusive qualities of married life and the transient nature of the world around us.
