Impossible Marriage

by Beth Henley
directed by Eric Wegener
Season 17
March 27—May 14, 2005
JEFF AWARDS RECOMMENDED

Floral Whitman should be the happiest woman in the world, she's married to Jonsey, whom everyone knows to be a "very handsome man," and their first child has nearly arrived. But something isn't sitting well with her and it isn't just third trimester giddiness.

To complicate everything her impetuous sister (the aptly named) Pandora's wedding day has arrived and it's starting to look like a slow motion train wreck. Edvard Lunt, her fiancé, is more than twice her age, much to mother Kandall's chagrin; his tightly-wound son Sidney has arrived to stop the wedding by any means possible and the Reverand Larance ("a good man" by all accounts) has wandered off into the woods.

Beth Henley's Impossible Marriage takes a fast and funny look at families, secrets, love and marriage and wraps it all up in some comic southern gentility. Strawdog welcomes director Eric Wegener to the House for the second main-stage show of our 17th Season.
