Play Reading- How to Transcend a Happy Marriage, by Sarah Ruhl
At a dinner party in New Jersey, two couples discuss polyamory as brought up by the introduction of a new temp, Pip, in Jane's office. When they invite Pip and her two partners to a New Years party, discussion turns to action and the exploration of the unexplored desire turns animalistic, and then Jane's daughter sees it all. How To Transcend A Happy Marriage blurs the lines of monogamy and asks how deeply friends, lovers, and strangers connect.
"This new play is a subversive enchantment. It is part absurd domestic serio-comedy, part erotic magic realism, unflinching about taboos and about questioning that, just maybe, monogamy isn't enough." Newsday
