"The Marriage Zone" is back again, still on the West side! Winner of "Best writer of an original play" at the 2018 Valley Theater Awards. From Jeff Gould, author of "It's Just Sex" and executive producers Bruce P. McNall and Steven C. Markoff, Beth and Cal's 20-year marriage is at the crossroads. One day, while selling their house, a younger and an older couple unexpectedly show up at the door. It seems innocent at first, but after a little while, it becomes apparent that they have way too much in common. They have crossed over into "The Marriage Zone". Discoveries are made, secrets are revealed, and the result is a hilarious and poignant look at the life of a marriage.
