Overview


Synopsis

Taking place from 1890 to 1925, the three act comedy highlights the hills and valleys in the long marriage of Michael, a writer, and Agnes, known only as his wife. After surviving a particulary awkward honeymoon, Michael and Agnes traverse the usual stages of matrimony: childbirth, extra-marital temptations, terrible teens, and eventual retirement. Through all, their ancient and venerable Fourposter stands, serving as a monument to enduring devotion, then finally becoming a symbol of the continuity of life, or rather, living.
