Next up from Island Players is a comic romp called "Til Beth Do Us Part," which has been described as a "side-splitting comic romp about marriage."
It's the play's publisher that called it that, so it may be an exaggeration, but the plot makes it sound as though it could be fun. It's essentially about a husband and wife whose marriage that gets strained by the wife's perky new assistant who intrudes into their personal lives.
It's a fairly popular play for community theaters around the country and the reviews have almost universally praised the fast-paced script by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten, Jones and Hope are successful TV writers; Wooten wrote a lot of episodes of "The Golden Girls."
By the way, there's another play with a very similar title, so don't confuse this play, "Til Beth Do Us Part," with the other, which is titled "Till Beth Do Us Part."
