Top of the World

 

Suzanne Murray, a lovely woman with two small children and seemingly everything to live for, just drove to the top of an overlook and killed herself. Her husband Brendan, creator of a TV crime show, is determined to understand why. But real life doesn’t solve as easily as fiction.

Cultural, national and gender identity; politics; marriage; death; and the mutability of theater are some of the many motifs that run through playwright Tom Jacobson’s deceptively sweet story in which a soon-to-be-married couple, Schiller and Arjay, take Schiller’s parents on their first trip to Europe. Using his personal experience as a jumping off point, Jacobson takes the audience on an ominously comic journey during which guinea pigs play cricket, dead bodies talk and the two couples learn what it means to be American in a world that no longer admires the U.S.

We have two casts.  In one, the younger couple Schiller and Arjay are portrayed by women, in the other, the couple is played by men.
