THE STORY: It’s just another dinner with the in-laws. Just another lasagna, another bottle of wine, maybe even some whiskey if the mood is right—or wrong. Kevin and Theo have been married for ten years, and they have decided its time to tell their nearest and dearest about their life-changing news. Balancing bitter and sweet with a deep sense of love, honesty, and irony, The Remains is a story of moving forward together yet apart, wherever the heart may take you.
“The vitality, compassion, and wisdom of Ken Urban’s writing are revealed in every scene of THE REMAINS. The dramatic paths he forges are roads to emotional enlightenment.”—Peter Marks, former Washington Post chief theatre critic.

“Absorbing…a thought-provoking, affecting study of the most vulnerable parts of a marriage.”—DC Theatre Scene.

“THE REMAINS will spark recognition in anyone who has ever had a long-term relationship.”—Washington Post.

“See it with someone you love, someone you live with, someone you like a lot, or someone you might like a thoughtful laugh with.”—DC Theater Arts.
