“…a stunning new play from a gifted playwright.” —Lynn Slotkin, The Slotkin Letter
“…maybe the year’s best new script” —Robert Cushman, National Post
An intense power struggle between two women who may have more in common than they thought, Between the Sheets questions the definitions of right versus wrong, and what it means to be a mother, wife, and the other woman.
Marion, a working mother with a special-needs child, has discovered a devastating secret: her husband Curtis has been engaging in a torrid love affair with none other than their son’s young teacher, Teresa. Armed with love notes between Curtis and Teresa, Marion shows up to a parent-teacher interview to confront the woman who may be the thread that unravels her life. What ensues is a gripping and raw confrontation between two women, one fighting to protect her family, the other fighting for the family she always wanted.
