Amelia Musical Playhouse is presenting this production as a benefit performance for America’s Youth, Inc.

The marriages of Diane and George, Barbara and Jonathan, are in serious trouble. George, a used-to-be famous writer, has retreated to a cabin in the woods where he now prefers to spend his days wallowing, drinking and ineffectively stumbling along in comic self-pity while Diane has gone on to pursue her own literary endeavors. She comes to visit him with a purpose in mind and their ensuing dialogue is both hilarious and touching, tapping into the often times fragile human condition.

Barbara has recovered from a breakdown and is now ready to leave the private clinic where she has recently been residing. Her upstanding, extremely successful husband, Jonathan, is coming to take her home. As they discuss their lives we learn of the often disruptive circumstances that can hide beneath the surface of a seemingly peaceful union.

Amelia Musical Playhouse is located at 1955 Island Walkway off 8th St in Fernandina Beach. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students and are available at the theatre,, or call the theatre box office at 277-3455.
