On the night of his 35th birthday, Robert (Zip Rampy) struggles to think of a wish to make as he blows out his birthday candles. The lone bachelor, surrounded by "those good and crazy people" -- his married friends -- Robert is uncertain whether he should simply be happy with his lot or whether he should wish for his own romantic partner. Over a series of dinner parties, first dates, thoughtful conversations, and even a wedding, Robert attempts to understand the pros and cons of marriage from his diverse and frequently hilarious friends, and he begins to question his adamant retention of bachelorhood.
Company runs November 6-22, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8PM and Sunday matinees at 3PM. Out of Box Theatre is located in the Artisan Resource Center at 585 Cobb Parkway South, Marietta, GA 30060.
