DO US PART Comes to Zephyr Theatre
Dee and Nick are an acrimoniously divorcing couple. They run into each other at their former home while packing up their respective belongings, the day before their divorce is to become final. Sniping begins. Claws are out. Fangs are bared. Then, they make an odd discovery: Despite the anger, despite the bitterness, despite the various emotional cruelties, they still love each other. Is there hope for them?
Scott Speiser portrays Nick. A series regular on Amazon Prime's The Tick, he has performed all over the world as a member of Blue Man Group. Locally, he has performed with The Groundlings Sunday Company. He is a graduate of Northwestern University.
