Dramatic Comedy CharacterS: 2 male, 2 female Multiple Sets Katha and Ryu have become allergic to their 21st-century lives. After they meet a charismatic man from a community of 1950s re-enactors, they forsake cell phones and sushi for cigarettes and Tupperware parties. In this compulsively authentic world, Katha and Ryu are surprised by what their new neighbors - and they themselves - are willing to sacrifice for happiness. "Piquantly funny, cleverly executed and darkly playful." - The New York Times "Jordan Harrison's Maple and Vine does everything a good play should do. It entertains. It makes you think....1950's conformity may not differ much from 2011's, but at least we have our conveniences. Harrison makes you weigh the costs and benefits of both eras without hitting you over the head with his own conclusion. You will enjoy reaching your own." - Theatre Louisville.
