Over the course of one very long Saturday evening, in three separate bedrooms, the roles and relationships of four couples, and one almost love triangle, are laid bare, complete with squabbles, bothers, a few bruises, and a hilariously touching epiphany. a 7 p.m. curtain for all Tuesday evening performances, changed from the prior 8 p.m. Tuesday starting time.
