SYNOPSIS:

Gina is not feeling fabulous. She has lost her job and feels stuck and frustrated in a passionless marriage. She has always lived life on the sidelines – that is, until she is met with the groundbreaking business opportunity of converting a team of well- built moving guys into well-built housecleaners. Initially the response from her ocean-swimming community is immediate, and her all-male cleaning staff an instant hit. Finally, she is the boss she has always wanted to be. But, as her business booms, her clientele demands something more – sex, or better yet, pleasure. Faced with something far more than she imagined, Gina and her team, including her foodie manager Steve, launch an enterprise that is all about getting intimacy right between people. For the first time, the women experience desire on their own terms. As Gina faces the highs and lows, the joys and struggles of maintaining such a unique business, she learns to stand up for herself, to look out for her own happiness and pleasure, and to take control of her life. HOW TO PLEASE A WOMAN is a precarious, often hilarious and revealing journey into the vulnerable world of what women really want and how hard it can be to get it right.

Rabbit Hole is an honest, brave, and searingly touching portrait of a family experiencing the most heartbreaking of griefs.

The play follows Becca and Howie Corbett, a couple in their late thirties, in the months following a horrific accident. They are searching for what is still possible in everyday existence after unimaginable agony. Becca finds pain in the familiar, while Howie finds comfort. He wants to hold on to the memories, cherish them, obsess over them; she wants to move on, erase the past, and start fresh.

Cracks begin to appear in the relationship as Howie bonds with a member of their therapy group and Becca reaches out to a teenage boy with an intertwined past. Tensions are only increased with the tumultuous involvement of Becca’s mother, Nat, and her sister, Izzy.

The journey for this couple, this family, is an intimate glimpse into loved ones learning to re-engage with one another, couples learning to love again, and people learning to piece themselves together after everything falls apart.
