Synopsis

As Simon’s flight crosses the Atlantic to the Old Country, he imagines the beautiful woman waiting for him. Betrothed since birth, he’s waited thirty long years to meet his beloved. Upon arrival, his fantasy is derailed by old crones, morally ambiguous clergymen, deceitful babies, and barnyard animals. Simon must navigate a world where murder, ghostly possession, and rampant cuckoldry wreak havoc with his sense of reality. An existential comedy with a fairy tale heart.

Performances August 15-26.

The Betrothed is sponsored by Shelley and Richard Holzman.
