As the action unfolds, we learn that Sharon and Kenny met at rehab, work menial jobs, and don't own a stick of furniture. Despite their obvious class differences, the veneer of contentment that both couples attempt to keep up in their lifestyles begins to clash viscerally with their need to escape – into the Internet, into the woods, into a high, away from the pressures and boredom of suburban life. They grapple with the tension between their familiar domesticity, cozy as it may be, and their dissatisfaction with it; living in a place where anything can happen, but nothing ever does. How did they find themselves here? This quintessential American backyard party quickly devolves into something more dangerous as playwright Lisa D’Amour explores what it really means to chase the American Dream – for better or for worse. PARKING Ample free parking is available within a short walking distance of the theatre. Street parking at meters is free during production hours. A pay lot is located directly adjacent to the theatre on Adams.
