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.
