Steph and Stewart are celebrating their first anniverary. She’s an English teacher; he’s a high-school librarian. At the heart of the occasion, though, is a terrible sorrow. You see, Steph and Stewart arrived home from their blissful honeymoon to find that something terrible had happened… Blackly hilarious and deeply moving, this two-hander moves from pathos to humour and back again as a tragic story is revealed. A vivid portrait of two ordinary people to whom an extraordinary event has occurred, One Good Marriage speaks to our need for community. One Good Marriage won the NOW Magazine award for Outstanding New Play at the 2002 Summerworks Festival.
