"In retrospect, the 1950s were a lot like Bizarro World: a period when much of what seemed right turned out to be wrong, and much of what was considered bad turned out to be wonderful. That's the very solid foundation for this play, which focuses on two Iowa couples who get married 'by the book' and then live to regret it…The script by Robert Bastron is funny and smart throughout." —HYReviews.com. "A hilariously compelling and earnest story." —NYTheatre.com. "A very funny play…Robert Bastron's script gets a lot of laughs." —CurtainUp.
