The Originals present IMPOSSIBLE MARRIAGE by Beth Henley

From Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Beth Henley comes this poetic, whimsical, and wildly funny Southern gothic fairy tale.  IMPOSSIBLE MARRIAGE hilariously pokes fun at the heroic struggle between our polite, civilized duties and our innermost primitive desires.  Much to her dismay, elegant Kandall’s  (Francesca Jellison) overly romantic youngest daughter Pandora (Molly Bryant Roberts) is to be wed to the brooding Edvard, (James Noel Hoban) a celebrated novelist over twice her age.  Floral, (Jennifer Porter) Pandora’s wry older sister, due to give birth at any moment, and married to the affable and handsome Jonsey, (William McDonough III) tries to help her mother put an end to the unsuitable match.  But it seems they are not the only ones against the marriage, as Sidney, (Stowell Watters) the groom’s troubled son, arrives with a note from his mother, Edvard’s ex, stating her intention to throw herself from her attic window if the  wedding goes forward.  To make matters worse, it appears that even the kind-hearted Reverend, (Dana Packard) who has come to wed the couple, has his own desperate secrets sure to interfere with the impending union!
“An intoxicating play that sends up love and marriage.” – Time Out New York
“A blissful visit with a delightfully balmy family.”  – The Associated Press
