Synopsis of Play:
A thoroughly contemporary comedy, nothing will prepare you for the dirty, little secret Cass discovers in her husband’s sweater drawer. It is so shocking that our heroine has no choice but to flee to the honeymoon capital of the world in a frantic search for the life she thinks she missed out on. It’s a wild ride over Niagara Falls in a barrel of laughs and pathos as Cass embarks on a journey of self-discovery that has her crossing paths with a blithely suicidal alcoholic, a lonely Maid-of-the-Mist tour-boat captain, a pair of bickering private detectives and a strange caper involving an oversized jar of peanut butter, all of which pushes her and other characters close to the water’s edge.
