My Brilliant Divorce - 2018 - Off-Broadway

New Yorker Rachel Lipsky Haringay is divorced and abandoned by her irritatingly round-headed British husband of many years after he discloses his Argentine lover, "Rosa the Posa". Now alone in London, Rachel is left to deal with an empty nest, a disapproving mother, a misogynous lawyer, some dubious counselors, a bad case of hypochondria and the specter of poverty. With only the family dog Axal for company, Rachel mourns her marriage, picks up the pieces and learns to live whole again. Nominated for an Olivier Award, My Brilliant Divorce explores how to cope when the world you have built comes crashing spectacularly down.
