Show description

Ruth and Jack, both in their mid-thirties, believe themselves perfectly suited to each other. But when Ruth suddenly mentions marriage, a subtle but ominous change is felt in their relationship. The mood at first is light-hearted and filled with brightly humorous lines, but later, no holds are barred, and the irreconcilable differences that were largely sublimated in the beginning now burst forth in full fury, leading to a monumental explosion and, apparently, Ruth and Jack’s acceptance of the sobering truth that there is more that divides than unites them.

Caitlin Morrison most recently graduated with her MFA from Louisiana State University.  While there, she was a resident company member of Swine Palace Productions, where she appeared as Jane in Vieux Carre, Celia in As You Like It, and Poppy in Noises Off. As her graduate thesis, she researched, wrote, and performed in her own one person show Give ‘er the Gun, a story about sexual assault in the military, which has since seen two productions. As a Wayne State BFA graduate, Caitlin has also been seen on the Studio (Serenading Louie), Bonstelle (Rimers of Eldritch, To Kill a Mockingbird) and Hilberry (The Cider House Rules) stages.  After a long hiatus she is thrilled to be acting once again in the Mitten.
