Rich with mystery and metaphor The Devil’s Wife is a harrowing comedy that goes to hell. A handsome and wealthy landowner who woos three sisters isn’t what he seems. But neither are they. After July 29th The Devil’s Wife will run in rep with The Lost Child, an emotional thriller that follows an estranged couple as they return to their deserted cabin in the woods to pack it all up.
The Devil's Wife and The Lost Child both dissect marriage and family with dark hilarity. Perhaps a bit creepy, but it is a sexy-creepy, like when you--well--you know--never mind. Both are uplifting in inappropriate ways that make you feel good but later you feel bad about feeling good, maybe.” - Tom Jacobson, Playwright
