A Demolition in Two Acts
You know, I think probably half the world’s fights started in kitchens.
What could help patch up a marriage better than a home renovation? Wayne thinks he’s doing his wife Julie a favour by hiring a young couple to help redo the kitchen (at a fraction of the cost she’d hoped for). But Julie has higher standards in mind. John and Maggie think they’ve found a way to make some quick money to pay off the land John bought. John just proposed, but Maggie hasn’t given her answer yet. With both couples on edge amongst themselves and at each other, everything from kitchen cabinets and coffee makers to generational differences and life choices are cause for ridicule, making a play that’s hilarious and relatable.
“Chafe has a great ear for dialogue. ” —Joff Schmidt
“After each zesty one-liner gets hammered home you quickly realized how universal home renovation comedy is for all couples. ” —Mike Green, Only in the Peg
