Welcome to life on the edge, played out in a suburban backyard. When Ben loses his job as a bank loan officer, he and his wife Mary ponder how they can stay afloat. Then Sharon and Kenny—who met in rehab, work dead-end jobs, and can’t afford more than ramen noodles for dinner—move into the long- vacant house next door. Over impromptu, charged, and often hilarious patio encounters, these two very different couples find common ground in the new economic doldrums, culminating in a “delirious, dangerous bacchanal.” Written by Lisa D’Amour and directed by Brian Weaver.
Performances run through November 3. Visit organizer Website above for dates, times and ticket information or call Portland Playhouse Box Office at 503-488-5822.
