Prescott Center for the Arts STAGE TOO in the alley between Murphy's and PCA, next to Peregrine Book Co.
By Henry Myerson Directed by Mary Timpany
Helenâ€™s life became complicated after her husband Murrayâ€™s stroke and her sister Gladysâ€™ revelation, wanting to set the record straight, in case Murray should die, that she and Murray had been having an affair. Helen suspected Murray was no angel when she married him. After all, as a stand-up comic he was always on the road and she knew comics could be loose cannons. Helen knew she was trading the risk Murray would bring to any relationship, let alone marriage, for the excitement of the gamble. While Helen might have been willing to adjust to Murray and his new stroke induced limits, the stakes were raised and the game was changed by Gladysâ€™ admission of the affair. So now Helen is left on the horns of dilemma: How can she be a nurturing caretaker for a man who has deceived her (with her own sister, yet) while knowing he is a snake with no visible conscience?
