I told her that it wouldn't be appropriate for us to meet in person. She asked me why not. I told her the truth. Because I was extremely attracted to her and didn't want to court the destruction of my marriage. She said, your wife never needs to know. It will just be a little adventure. Nothing even needs to happen.
September 2016 marks the fifteen-year anniversary of Rob and Lucy's very first date. What better way to mark this milestone than to create a show all about love? As part of his research Rob underwent an MRI scan. His ventromedial prefrontal cortex surged when looking at a picture of his wife. However, it also surged while looking at other pictures.
In equal parts TED Talk and theatrical experiment, this is the show that combines a live on-stage date and evolutionary theory. Whether you're single or attached, this is a big-hearted play for those looking to find love and those wanting to celebrate it.
In Fidelity received its world premiere at the HighTide Festival 2016.
