*Half and Half

World Premiere
Written by James Sherman
Directed by Dennis Zacek
May 26 – July 9, 2006


Half of all marriages end in divorce. So half of all marriages continue, right? Maybe. In Half and Half, James Sherman explores marriages past and present. In the first act, at a breakfast in 1970, the breadwinner husband reads the newspaper, as the homemaker wife fries the eggs. In the second act, at a breakfast taking place this morning, the career-minded wife reads the paper, and the stay-at-home husband cooks the frittata. With his unique comic insight, Sherman looks at how husbands and wives accept and reject their roles, how their roles have changed, and how their roles just might be changing again.
