Imagine running into your ex and his or her new spouse. Now imagine running into your ex and finding out your current spouse was once married to your ex's new spouse awkward. That's the scenario the Westport Community Theatre brings to life in its production of the romantic comedy "Mixed Couples."
Written by James Prideaux, the play is set in an airplane hangar in New Jersey in 1927. The story unfolds after two couples waiting for the same plane meet. But these people aren't just perfect strangers it turns out the four had switched partners twenty-five years earlier, and haven't seen each other since.
This "what are the odds" meeting has all the makings of a good laugh for the audience, at least as their civil conversations gradually turn spiteful.
Directed by Jessica Denes, the show stars Fairfield resident Rosanne Nelson, Janet Rathert of New Canaan, Fairfield's David Victor, Stratford resident Peter Wood and Andrew Morris of Norwalk.
You can catch the show at the Westport Community Theatre until April 24. Show times are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays. There will also be a showing Thursday, April 14, at 8 p.m.
