John and Anne have two children and a good marriage—they have sex, drive hybrids, and recently, they cut out sugar. But John has been spying on the neighbors, frankly, for a while now, and at 9 a.m, Halloween morning, the neighbors drop by for a visit. THE CHEATS is a play about your marriage, and how it can get f*cked when you forget to lock the front door.
