Set Requirements: Unit Set


THE COTTAGE (a comedy in two acts), is a rollicking comedy of manners and farce inspired by the works of Noel Coward. Set in the English Countryside in 1923, this tale of love, sex and betrayal begins when Sylvia Van Kipness decides to expose her love affair to her husband. The true meantings of fate, identity, and marriage are all called into question as a surprising and hilarious web of secrets unravel in this ridiculous, potentially murderous, romantic comedy.

Finalist: 2014 Reva Shiner Comedy Award
