|A Marriage Contract
by Augustin Daly
February 16 - March 18, 2018
It's a comedy of country and city life when well-intentioned and determined lovers of each must contend with falling in love with one another. The valiant effort of a city boy to break himself to his country wife's little town nearly succeeds, in spite of its inertia and judgements. At least his failure opens some hitherto closed eyes and hearts.
