-- LA Times
Set in Los Angeles, DIVORCE! takes us on one couple’s hilariously hellish journey to un-tie the knot.
As Penny and Rich’s marriage unravels, denial, deception, and raw outrage collide with greedy lawyers, dramatically inclined family members and out-to-lunch therapists.
From "Till Death Do Us Part" to "I'm Living In My Parents' Basement" to the realization that each spouse is only left with "Half," DIVORCE! reminds us that laughing in the face of tragedy can sometimes be the best way to move on.
Featuring music, lyrics, and book by multi-award winning composer and playwright Erin Kamler (Frederick Loewe Award and three time winner of Stephen Sondheim’s Young Playwright’s Festival) and directed by multi-award winning director Rick Sparks (LA Ovation, LA Drama Critics Circle and Backstage West Awards).
