"An idea-inebriated comedy from the adventurous author of In the Next Room, or the Vibrator Play." ?The New York Times
"Sarah Ruhl tackles the polyamorous in her brilliant new play and finds love, beauty, and music." ?The Wrap
Over dinner with another married couple, George and her husband grow fascinated by stories of their friends' new acquaintance-an intriguing younger woman named Pip, who is both polyamorous and hunts her own meat. What be- gins as an innocent intellectual discussion turns into a sexually explosive New Year's Eve party after George extends an invitation to Pip and her two live-in boyfriends. Raising the question of what ultimately binds human beings together, Sarah Ruhl's How to Transcend a Happy Marriage is a transformative and provocative new drama.
