Maple and Vine - 2011 - Off-Broadway

"The thing to remember is that the 1950s weren't in black and white."



Katha and Ryu have become allergic to their 21st-century lives. After they meet a charismatic man from a community of 1950s reenactors, they forsake cell phones and sushi for cigarettes and Tupperware parties. In this compulsively authentic world, Katha and Ryu are surprised by what their new neighbors -- and they themselves -- are willing to sacrifice for happiness. "Piquantly funny, cleverly executed, and darkly playful." -- Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
